Norwich Norfolk 28th February 2018

Norwich Norfolk 28th February 2018 

The Beast from the East(ern Region)!

Before we left for Southall shed British Railways Standard 4-6-2 70013 Oliver Cromwell had to endure a blizzard in the siding at Norwich Thorpe. In fact we were off 90 mins late because that DB Schenker freight train on the left was blocking us in. Despite that we arrived on Southall shed only 60 minutes late. The weather hardly effected us except to make us bleeding cold of course!

Almost. We were taking the engine back to Southall. The Cardiff trip planned for the following day was cancelled and it ran its last main line trip to York on 3rd March.
