    Some interesting work going on at the MNR upgrading the level crossing on Yaxham Road in Dereham. Can't be easy working under the main A47 flyover! (Photos from Friends of MNR Facebook page by Russ Bulmer and Peter Singlehurst) [ATTACH] [ATTACH]...

    I think the N7 spent some time in LNER black during its first ticket though.
