    Yes. The 9F+ N2 were both hauled 'dead' to Weybourne yesterday by the 03 shunter, which promptly failed, leading to the unusual combination of Class 11 + Class 03 + N2 + 9F.

    Just awaiting Sir Lamiel now, which should also face Holt.

    Heres to a good weekend. You'll probably see me about on Friday and Saturday on the lineside

    It was 1:05 late through north Walsham. Had an extended stop at Ely, possibly due to oil not getting to the driving wheels. All seemed in good order when i saw it though. It will be facing Holt, as predicted

    What a day! Had a cracking day today, the light was sensational, the crews were enthusiastic, the staff were friendly. Just a fantastic day out.

    You never seem to disappoint at your gala's, I can't wait to get out again tomorrow with hopefully some of the same cracking light...

    Keep up the great work :)
    Simon.

    Fantastic, great to see the J15 on a goods train.

    Post pics later. East midlands watercrane looking good at Holt.

    I hope the investment of all these impressive engines has paid off.
