North Norfolk – back on the diesel scene!

After a hiatus of a few years, North Norfolk Railway returned to the diesel gala scene in 2011 with a small gathering of three visiting locos plus the home fleet at the time.

20118 had just become part of the HNRC fleet, leaving its home at the South Devon Railway, former stablemate 37037 was on loan from the South Devon Railway and DRS supplied 37510.

…and then leaves shortly after, heading for Sheringham.

37510 makes its presence known coming up the bank from Sheringham to Weybourne.

37037 (or 6737 if you work in old money) stands at Holt after arriving from Sheringham. It would work back to Sheringham in tandem with 37510.

Considering the lack of diesel galas on the railway for a good number of years prior to this, it was very well attended – no doubt helped by the beautiful weather. The success of it certainly put a few of the “kettle crew” noses out of joint – “they shouldn’t have these smelly diesels on this steam railway” was heard to be uttered from one of the volunteers.
