GWR 94XX 0-6-0ST 9466 at Dereham station in August 2009
The class 94XX was designed by Hawksworth as a modern version of the 57XX 0-6-0PT. The first ten were built by the Great Western Railway.Then the next 180 were built for BR. This one number 9466, was built in November 1952 by Robert Stephensons and Hawthorns at its Newcastle works for the BR. It was withdrawn in July 1964, and ended up in Barry Scrapyard in March 1965.
GWR 0-6-0ST 9466 in GWR green at Dereham station in 2009
The Mid-Norfolk is a mainly a diesel line today. But it is putting in water cranes and water tanks, so steam can use the line. Each summer the Mid-Norfolk hirers in a steam locomotive and in 2009 it was this GWR 0-6-0ST 9466. As the 94XX was built by BR it is in the painted in the wrong colours but it look nice in GWR green.
The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust
It was only around 1995 that The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust started to restore this line between Dereham and Wymondham. It now has 17.5 miles of track (11.5 miles is in use) which when its is all in use, will be one of longer preserved railways in the UK. A lot of the other preserved railways had already had a twenty year start when they started.
