9F 2-10-0 92203 coming off shed  on the North Norfolk Railway
 
9F 2-10-0 92203 coming off shed at Weybourne on the North Norfolk Railway in 2007.
 
This 9F number 92203 was built at Swindon in January 1959. This 9F was purchased from BR by the artist David Shepherd and went to the Longmoor Military Railway.
 
All this steam and only its only a light engine movement off shed. It looks like it is pulling a long freight up some long bank.

9F 2-10-0 92203 Black Prince on a passenger train to Sherringham at Weybourne station in 2007
 
The 9fs were built only for heavy slow freight trains, which is what the F  stands for.  When they were used on passenger trains they had a far higher top speed than was deemed safe.The small driving wheels and motion were going round to quick. They also have no frange on the center driving wheels, so were then baned from mainline steam tours.
 
The 9fs were one of British Railways best steam locomotives. They were got rid of in far too great a haste. Some of them were only just run in. All the 9Fs saved have now been in private hands longer than they were with BR.

About the North Norfolk Railway
 
The North Norfolk Railway runs between Sheringham and Holt which is about 10 miles for the return trip. Sheringham is the railways headquarters.
 
On the other side of the road to the Sheringham North Norfolk Railway station is Sheringham Mainline railway station which is part of the Bittern Line from Norwich. The North Norfolk Railway own station is the old Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway station with the mainline station being just a short open platform.
 
The NNR now has a main connection and trains can now cross over the road between the two stations at Sheringham on certain days of the year.
 
This station Weybourne is a passing place and often two trains will be in the station. Weybourne has the NNR engine sheds and workshops here .
 
Kelling Heath Park is just a small Halt with trains only stopping by request on the return journey because of the gradient, here.
 
 
Holt station is not now were the old station was, as when this part of M&GN closed a road was built on part the old railway bed. The site of were the old M&GN station was, has also been built on.
 
The new NNR station at Holt has all new platforms but the signal box and the station buildings and other parts, have been saved from other M&GN stations or built in same way.
