B12 Incident

21st September 2015

With some trepidation we do have to announce that the B12 was involved in an incident on Sunday 20th September at Holt (running into the buffers). We ask please for no speculation we will update once we have facts.

The society, and the Chairman (who was action as RO) in particular would like to thank the North Norfolk Railway Volunteers and Employees (both working and who just happened to be about the railway) who were exemplary in help and assistance to keep things going and helping above and beyond what was expected or even hoped for.

21st September 2015 Update:

We are pleased to report that the B12 has now been safely removed to Weybourne Works and we would like to thank all those involved in its speedy collection and delivery. It now awaits a full inspection by the Weybourne technicians and we will advise you in due course what repairs will be required.

28th September 2015 Update:

Literally the phone has just been put down from the authorities involved. We are now allowed to start stripping down to properly access the damage and work out what repairs are needed. Investigations into the incident are still on going. More updates as and when we have them.
