    Five Riddles designed locomotives in steam together should be quite a sight.

    I believe the N2 will no longer be running, replaced by the Y14.

    WD is out of the running too. Injector failed on Friday pm and I don’t think they have fixed it today.

    Read on FB they are bringing out the reliable old Ring Haw to replace the WD.

    That little engine is worth it's weight in gold.

    Just got back, great day, brilliant weather, Sunday morning seemed quiet but numbers picked up pm however it was never crowded. My highlight, 78018 going up Kelling bank, what a lovely noise. If only it sounded like that on the GCR. :)

    My video from Friday in glorious weather including some cracking climbs of Kelling Bank in the early evening. A great gala put on by the NNR.

    I think Kelling Bank produces some of the best sounds on heritage railways

    No hint of bias there! Have to say I rather enjoyed the Standard 2 and the Y14 up Kelling bank on Friday considering I wasn't planning to go until half 10 on Friday morning when I got to a suspiciously quiet Norwich Station and no 37's were about! Well done all concerned at the NNR.
