Great Eastern Railway Y14
This locomotive has been at the North Norfolk for a number of years looking as it was when she was saved from British Railways as a LNER J15.
In 2014 when the locomotive needed a full overhaul an appeal was launched to return this steam locomotive back to a Great Eastern Railway Y14, in as near to its original 1912 as-built condition.
Some of the many things done to the J15 are a new GER profile dished style smoke box door, a GER stove pipe chimney together a new flush riveted appearance smokebox, a new wooden cab roof to the original lower profile and a dummy set of Ramsbottom safety valves.
The locomotive has been re-painted in an authentic Great Eastern Railway blue livery with gold leaf lettering.
The locomotive can still be returned back to its various Class J15 appearances if every needed.

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.
