70013 'Oliver Cromwell' arriving on NNR metals.

Postby kieranhardy » Thu Mar 11, 2010 6:13 pm

Well history was made today when 70013 arrived on the NNR with a tour from London, the first time a train has arrived on the NNR by rail for over 40 years:

Hi Phipps, thanks for the pics. Always said the 7MT was a crowd puller, what a great looking locomotive...

Colin-glad to oblige mate & anyone who want's to Right Click....be my guest,we're all here to share(well,I am anyway :lol: ).
Ben & Stephen-Absolutely BANG ON!!
I was under the bottom white canopy of the newsagent/shop Whistle Stop & had hold of Alfie in my right arm so he could over the crowds & the Canon camera in my left.I was wearing my BR Blue Forum fleece...........
I'm gutted that I was then filming the engine going past with my Sony phone,put the blighter on pause,but forgot to save it :oops: :evil:
Seeing at Cromer later made up for it a bit :wink:
