This Mid-Norfolk Railway Diesel gala was on Friday the 30th and Saturday 31st March and Sunday April the 1st 2012.
I went on the Friday to this Mid-Norfolk Railway Diesel Gala. This was the railways first Diesel Gala of 2012. Three locomotives had been booked in, to add to the Mid Norfolks own collection of mainline diesel locomotives. Class 55022 and a class 40 and a class 37 came for the event. The class 55 or as it is better known as, a Deltic, was the star of the weekend. The Deltic and the class 40 which was painted in British Railways green with its old number of D355 had come by rail, light engines from the East Lancashire Railway on the Thursday by way of Peterborough and Ely. The class 37 did not get to the MNR till Saturday so I did not see it. The railways own class 20 class 31 and class 37 and its class 50 also were also in use.

These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
