    Just found this on YouTube, a video covering the first visit of Black Prince to the NNR in 2007.

    Includes some great footage of Black Prince and the WD parallel running at Weybourne

    I'm looking forward to visiting with the 28. I've never managed to make it over to the North Norfolk so it'll be nice to finally tick it off the list!

    A little video featuring 90775, one of the 101 DMUs and D6732 in action on a windy Thursday on the NNR.

    Always nice to see the B12 in action. Even if the chilly mid February weather probably made it chilly for the crew. D7A03D09-9D13-4BD0-B68B-2DF1212A5CCB.jpeg

    Why would they be chilly?
    They have a nice big fire to keep them warm.
    Think of the bods out on the track on PW and S+T work, they are the ones likely to be in the cold and wet.

    If you’re intending to come to our steam gala over the 27th to 29th March, you get 10% discount right up to the 17th March.

    If you’re intending to bring children, we are running our kids for a quid again. Advance tickets for our Fish and Chip trains are also available on the website.

    Pretty good value for 2 guest engines that haven’t been to the NNR before, and supported by a great cast of home engines!
