North Norfolk Railway Spring Steam Gala (4k)

Our second visit to the North Norfolk Railway.

One advantage of this short picturesque railway line close to the Norfolk Coastline is there plenty of action with not long to wait between trains.

We began our journey at Holt and travelled the length of the line to Sherringham. As it was raining as the train pulled in we travelled back to Weybourne. The weather had cleared up enough to have a look around the station and a for us to take a walk along the path which gives good views of the railway and the North Sea beyond.



We walked back to Weybourne and caught a train to Sheringham to have a look around there as the weather was a bit better.

Finally, we had a ride back from Sheringham to Holt

Steam locomotives taking part in the gala were:


  • LMS Stanier 8F, No. 48624, 2-8-0
  • GWR 0-6-2T, 5643
  • LNER B12 Class, 8572, 4-6-0 
  • GER Y14 Class, 564, 0-6-0
  • BR Standard 4MT, 76084, 2-6-0 'Standard 4'
  • Ring Haw, 1982, 0-6-0ST
