Steaming into the Next Century

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

Our B12 is the flagship of the North Norfolk Railway. Built in June 1928, it is still seen regularly on the line today. But after 10 years of near continuous running, our B12 is due a well-earned overhaul.


What’s special about 8572?

  • It’s unique: the only inside cylinder 4-6-0 in preservation

  • Bought from BR in 1963, it has been resident at the NNR since 1967

  • Since returning to steam in 1995, it has accumulated c70,000 miles

  • Ran for 33 years on the mainline but has already been in preservation for almost double that (58)
