Diesel Gala Returns to North Norfolk Railway 25th and 26th June
The first NNR diesel gala for some years promises a real feast for the enthusiast.

The strong line-up scheduled to appear over the weekend of June 25/26 is headed by HNRC’s latest acquisition, 20118; the Class 20 came over the Sheringham level crossing at the end of April, and will stay for about three months.

Other locos will be D6737, 47367, 25057 and one of the class 37s from the DRS fleet.

The unique Leyland railbus LEV1, which was originally trialled in East Anglia, adds a special (every quirky!) touch, and the line-up is completed by the NNR’s recently refurbished 101 DMU.

NNR managing director Hugh Harkett said:  “We hope for renewed success with this gala, in which case it will again become a regular event.”

All day hop-on, hop-off Rover fares are £16 adult, £15 senior citizen, £10 child and £45 family (2 adults + 2 children, one 3 adults + 1 child).  There is a 15% discount for tickets booked before June 17th.

For bookings and lineside photo passes, go to www.nnrailway.co.uk or call 01263 820 800.
