    Cracking day out at the North Norfolk on Saturday, £12.50 for a day rover, 3 round trips, plus 2 Sheringham - Weybourne journeys. 3 loco's D182/46045 8572 and 76084 in action. Nice little day out was had, both 8572 and the standard sounded nice and loud as they climbed the bank up to Holt. Anyone who hasn't been, please go have a day out there, I always come back from a day out at the NNR with a huge smile on my face! It really is a smashing little railway.

    Looking forward to seeing WD 90733 at the gala.

    Maybe they could swap 90733 for 90775, as the WD 2-8-0 was a type seen on M&GN lines.

    (I jest of course!)

    Would love to see an East Anglian themed gala one day, with the B12, Y14, maybe a B1, Ivatt 4MT, N7, a Britannia... though I realise that would be a challenge to organise!

    Cracking phot of D8 there, not a fan of big Sulzers but 44008 was pretty special, know it's a bit of a pain to tow it anywhere being vac braked but are we going to see it make a few more visits away from home? Cracking event well done to all those who did the dirty work, was rather worth the silly o'clock start and detour to Yarmouth yesterday morn!

    2 of mine from Saturday, was a really enjoyable day out for me, just frustrating to see 37218 OOU at Weybourne! Was still pretty decent to have 2x 20's and 3 different 37's in Norfolk on Saturday. Again well done all concerned. Here's to 2018!

    Just read on the M&GN Society FB page that the WD was scheduled to haul it's first public service since it's overhaul today, hope it went smoothly.
