    We are pleased to report that the North Norfolk Railway's vintage train has grown to four vehicles following the completion of M&GN (Ex Midland Railway) First Class saloon No3. A full description of its return to service and previous history is available in this week's C&W Blog update:

    I had my 3 year old nephew with me so it was more about servicing his needs than mine (a pleasure to do so I might add)...model and miniature railway and more keen on seeing the trains than riding on them but at least I saw the picnic saloon and rode behind, what seemed to be a much happier Y14. As usual the NNR/M&GN put on a lovely day
