Success for Wissington Specials

We would like to thank all supporters and members who came out on the first weekend of public services on the North Norfolk Railway for supporting our special day out withWissingtonand theWisbech & UpwellCoach.


Wissingtonperformed faultlessly, in her new deeper green and more authentic British Sugar Corporation livery. B12 8572 worked alongsideWissingtonwith Class 37 D6732 on Saturday 14th and the NNR's Class 101 DMU on Sunday 15th. Signwriting to addWissingtonnameplates to the tank sides could not be completed in time for the day but will commence shortly


Wissingtonwill return to the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway shortly, but we hope that this will not be the first special to use the Wisbech & Upwell coach this year.

Two videos of the day on Sunday 15th can be found on the Society Youtube pagehereand via Peter Boggis,here.
