The 166th issue ofJoint Line, the Society's quaterly magazine has been posted to all members.
This issue ofJoint Linecontains an overview from the NNR's managing director Hugh Harkett of NNR finances for the last trading year - and a good year it has been. There is photographic coverage of the Spring Steam Gala, a couple of Mayflower on main line duty - one at Somerleyton - as well as photos of the Y7 and Ring Haw on hire to other railways.
The centre spread is a particularly nice photograph of the newly-outshipped Y14 in GER livery - which is also for sale as a larger A3 poster - and there is full coverage of its return to the NNR together with reports on all the other Society-owned locomotives. Detailed plans are published of the NNR's new building at Sheringham in Bob Wright's 'Works' article and there is the usual round-up of other activity on the Railway.
The historical section has Adrian Vaughan's take on the 'golden age' of the M&GN, David Webb has a short piece with photos on the bridge that took M&GN trains over the East Coast Main Line and Ray Bullock continues his fascinating recollections of life as a fireman on the M&GN.
