Post Christmas Blues

The Anglian short set(s) were again booked to be out in the period between Christmas and New Year 2016 and combined with decent weather forecast it seemed rude not to take the opportunity to take advantage.

First off, 37405 leads 2J67 0747 Lowestoft-Norwich through Brundall just as the sun makes it over the top of the trees. 27/12

37424 had arrived from Derby a few weeks previously. It looks shiny but doesn’t work properly – not bad for a c£500k job! 27/12/16

37424 again leaves Lingwood with a Yarmouth bound train; not technically brilliant but serves to highlight the ‘quality job’ done on the overhaul (well at least the paintwork is shiny). 27/12/16

Mid Norfolk Railway December Gala

Mid Norfolk Railway held another of their excellent galas over the weekend of 27/28th December 2014 and had 68007 from DRS as a guest engine. The Sunday was the better day for photography with loads of sunshine so a couple of photos are below:

47367 and 47596 approach the level crossings on departure from Dereham. Shortly after, 47367 developed some kind of fault so the remainder of the trip saw 47596 pushing.
