D407 was built at the Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows by English Electric between the years 1967 and 1968.  These English Electric Type 4s were leased by British Railways for use on the West Coast Main Line. At the end of the lease Bitish Railways purchased them. They became Class 50 under the TOPS renumbering.
 
D407 was built in 1968. It was named Hercules, but was later repainted in Great Western Railway colours given the name Sir Edward Elgar.
 
This class 50 D407 is now owned by Boden Rail Engineering Ltd. The name 'Hercules' has been put back, and the locomotive repainted in BR blue.

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.
 
Trains run now between Dereham and Wymondham. The next section from Dereham to County School is next. There is a even longer term aim to reach as far as Fakenham. The way they are going, they may well get there.
 
The Mid-Norfolk Railway has a ever growing collection of heritage diesels, carriages and wagons which just gets bigger each year. When you go back you can see what has been done since last time you came.
 
Some of other the preserved railways have had things that have been ongoing for years, not The Mid-Norfolk Railway it just gets them done.
