And just my opinion... my idea of a 'dead' locomotive is not one that is on display, but one that has been scrapped.
This is certainly one I'd like to see succeed. In fact I am rooting for all the LNER new builds. The preservation scene needs more Eastern types.
[ATTACH] Good to see Black Prince back in action
As far as I know, yes. It’s already there on display. But I guess it is not at the top of the list of priorities for the NNR as it’s not needed...
Ah I see, the one coming from Reedham.
Just read that the miniature railway at Holt is closing. Is this to make way for the installation of the turntable perhaps?
Glad to read that other than the withdrawal of the Y14 the gala went smoothly this year.
Locos usually face towards Holt.
I see Black Prince and the WD are double heading a few times on the Sunday. Wish I could be there to see that.
Looking forward to seeing Black Prince back in service.
80078 is already in the region, and I guess 9466 can come in by rail across the Sheringham level crossing. So fingers crossed no cancellations...
I think in the last twenty years the NNR has rightfully taken it's place amongst the premier heritage lines in the country.
Considering the M&GN...
Love the colour scheme. Looks like a standard gauge version of the RH&DR's 'Winston Churchill'
I'm glad there is an operational continental steam locomotive back on the line.
I think the 'What's Running' pages on heritage railway websites are a great idea in theory, but maybe just not practical in reality.
And I quite...
Personally I'm just happy it will be running, whether on a heritage line or main line.
That Standard 2-8-2 is beautiful. Better looking than a 9F in my opinion.
Maybe now the steam fleet’s foreseeable future is secure fund raising efforts can focus on other projects like the proposed Holt exhibition shed.
At least we know the B12, Y14, WD and Wissington have a rosy future for the next ten to twenty years at least
I think if the NNR should make a bid to restore an NRM locomotive, it should be the J17.
Anyway, apologies, Just more WIBN
