"V2 60800 'Green Arrow' lands at the NNR"
Having to work an eight-hour shift today was torture for me, knowing that the V2 was in steam.
To make things worse the weather was perfect as well. However, I managed arrive at the North Norfolk in time to see V2 60800 & WD 90775 double heading the 14:45 ‘Santa Special’ near bridge 303.
I Just wish I’d brought my video camera with me to record her absolutely awesome display.
Here is a sequence of shots, plus a couple taken at Weybourne after dark.

Spent the first week of my two-week holiday enjoying days out around the county often incorporating a pub lunch somewhere.
But was drawn back to the railway today for some well needed exercise and some of that good old North Norfolk sea air.
The B12 (61572) & class 25 (D5207) were alternating today’s services. Couldn't resist a shot of 47367, she was parked in Sheringham head shunt along with 31207, 5580 & 376732.
Can’t wait to see her in action….come to think of it, I've yet to see 31207 in action!

Yes I'm back again!... Just fancied a walk and some fresh air after finishing work on this fine July afternoon,
The red timetable came into operation at the North Norfolk this week, which means steam services every 45 minutes
in addition to the usual early morning and late afternoon diesel services.
I Arrived at Weyboune just in time to see 8009 arrive with the 14:15 service from Sheringham. The B12 (61572) followed with the 15:00 Service, by this time I’d made my way up Kelling Heath, the view up there was as spectacular as ever..
The 101 DMU came up with the 16:30 service. as I made my way back to Weybourne... Back again soon!
Sunday 18th July 2004
It's been almost two months since we last visited the North Norfolk mainly because of the recent spell of awful weather.
Today was no exception as we decided to take a trip on the 2 car 101 DMU which has recently entered service at the North Norfolk, I must say she looks very smart in her BR blue livery and gives a very smooth ride.
It was the turn of the B12, 61572 to haul the steam service today.
The sun did eventually put in an appearance as the B12 arrived at Weybourne with the 15:00 service from Sheringham which we boarded for our return to Holt and journey's end.

With the weather today surprisingly sunny after such an unsettled period,
Ben and I took the opportunity to explore some new vantage points along the Weybourn to Holt section
made possible by the acquisition of our photographic lineside passes, thank you Ian!
Its' been quite a while since I've taken any still shots of Austerity 8009. It's good to see her back in action again.
Today she was heading alternate 45 minute services with J15 65462.
Friday 9th April 2004 (Good Friday)
After a dismal week of wet and windy weather the Easter weekend has at least started off fine, which is great.
Ben and I decided to explore some new vantage points as well as re-visiting some of our old favourites.
Major clarence & re-fencing at Kelling has thrown up some interesting viewpoints..
It was great to see the J15 back at the NNR after her visits to the GCR, GCR(N) and WSR....
WD (90775) briefly saw action today but was substituted by Class 25 (D5207) after developing a problem during it's first turn.
And of course the Diesel Railbus (E79960) ran the first and last service of the day.
