Mid-Norfolk Railway gala showcases new sidings

THE Mid-Norfolk Railway’s April 5-7 diesel gala started in glorious sunshine, but the number of passengers was low. 

Trains ran between Dereham and Wyndham only, but a problem with the signalling installed in connection with the new storage sidings at Kimberley Park led to delays, amounting to about 40 minutes by the end of the day.

Class 03 No. 03197 reverses towards the new sidings at Kimberley Park on April 7. This was possibly the only day passengers will travel into these sidings, which will soon be fully occupied by stored multiple units. ANDY MARRISON

All stock was air-conditioned and electric heat only, with the prototype HST power car No. 41001 bringing in three refurbished and repainted Mk3s and one still in Virgin livery.
