North Norfolk Railway 1/7

In early July we spent a few days at Sheringham, a seaside resort on the North Norfolk coast. Many of you from the U.K.will know that Sheringham is the home of the North Norfolk Railway, which is a 5-mile stretch of restored line running as far as Holt on the trackbed of the former Midland and Great Northern Railway. We spent most of a day on the railway and this was the first train we travelled on awaiting departure in Sheringham station. You will have to wait until tomorrow to find out which locomotive was standing at the head of the train.

Years ago, I would have enjoyed doing this as a jigsaw, Brian. Now I don't have time
Brian Walbey: Yes it would make a good jigsaw I think.
Love those old carriages with individual compartments.
Brian Walbey: I well remember travelling to and from Kings Cross in stock like this, complete with the same wording on the carriage ends.

It is full of period charm Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes there really isn't much, if anything, to date this as the 2,000's is there.
I reckon it's Edward the Blue Engine
Brian Walbey: Not quite Bill but watch this space in a few weeks time.

Very pleasing set of maroon carriages.
Brian Walbey: Just like the ones I used to travel to work in London in during the 1960's Mike.

I must go back to Norfolk and sample this railway Brian.
Brian Walbey: Whilst it is only 5 miles long it is a lovely railway with quite a scenic journey, well worth a visit as is Sheringham itself.
Looks like an old LNER poster smile
Brian Walbey: I guess it does Tom, certainly the stock does.
This looks to be a very posh train, Brian. Does the inside reflect the exterior?
Brian Walbey: Not quite posh Beverly, I used to travel to London and work every day in carriages like this is the 60's so it is more utilitarian as against the longer distance trains which had refreshment cars and so on.

I bet the Station Master is saying "I'll be glad to see the back of that train"! Looks to have been a busy station in its heyday.
Brian Walbey: NO doubt he was Alan, I suspect it is generally busier now than when it was still BR.to be honest, there were lots of holidaymakers on all the trains the day we went.
A very nice feeling of yesteryear, good image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John, I don't think there is much in the picture to date it to modern times apart perhaps from the passengers clothes.
A lovely capture Brian, the aspect ratio works nicely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, it's a good station for compositions like this.
Splendid capture Brian. Light and tones are terrific!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Great day out, Brian, in superb surroundings, and this captures it perfectly.
Brian Walbey: We really enjoyed our trip on the railway Graeme and stopped off at Weybourne for a while just watching trains pass through.
How fun for you as a train fan!
Brian Walbey: Indeed Elizabeth, but it goes through nice countryside and I think people enjoy just going for the ride.
