Our train has now travelled the 5 miles from Sheringham to Holt and the locomotive will be uncoupled and run round to the other end of the train for the return journey. This locomotive is one of the ex Great Eastern Holden designed B12 Class from 1911, and it was built in 1928. Subsequently it was rebuilt by Gresley to class B12/3, with a larger boiler, round topped firebox and long travel valves. This engine is now the only working inside cylinder 4-6-0 in Europe and was preserved by the M&GN society in 1963. The engine is currently in LNER apple green livery.
