The Crome Dito with B1 61264 at Sheringham main line station.

B1 61264 with a train from Norwich at Sheringham main line station.


The steam train above was the "Cromer Dido" on Sunday the 30th April with a Broadman headboard. This train had started at Norwich. The first part to Cromer was with a class 33 in charge with the B1 at the rear. The next part after waiting for the normal service train to use the other patform at Cromer was from Cromer to Sheringham with the B1 in charge and the class 33 in the rear.

At Sherringham no passengers on the train were permitted to get off. The platform was so short the B1 took up most of the platform and only about  10mins were booked for the stop. Three trips between Cromer and Sheringham were booked be for the train then returned to Norwich.

There was a two hour service to Sheringham at this time and this steam train had to slot in between them. After 2006 a 1 hour service was put in place and this path for steam was lost.

This trip may have been a one off, but the train was full.

The new Sheringham Crossing that re-opened on Thursday the 11th of March in 2010 with Oliver Cromwell crossing over the road with a mainline steam trip will now let main line steam trips onto the North Norfolk railway. These new steam or diesel trips may have to be early or late slots to fit in with the timetable, which will give time to see the NNR.

Light engine movements have often been made in the middle of the night!
