    The article I read stated that the NNR was partly funding the overhaul of 44767 in exchange for a period of use on the line. Similar, maybe, to the previous arrangement with the 76084 group.

    Putting 44767 back into traffic will be a real challenge and probably a lot of money for somebody.

    Five named standard gauge steam locos on the NNR, might be a Norfolk heritage railway record! Would be great to see 44767 back. Maybe in the future Mayflower will make a visit too.

    Great news if 44767 is possibly going to Weybourne, I believe this was mentioned a couple of years but nothing happened. No doubt the superb team in the works at Weybourne will sort the 5mt out, that should be simple after seeing some of the work...

    I fail to see why you have got yourself in a state just because I am not glued to this site and instantly reply! Yes there is a track being built in Southwold for which locos will eventually be sought. My post was merely asking where was good and...

    Yes I saw that in the recent Steam Railway Magazine and I think it would great to see her back the NNR. Black 5s are great locomotives and that would bring NNR steam fleet up to 9 locomotives.

    With the home fleet all in operation plus the N2 and 44767, things look very healthy on the motive power front, even if 76084 does depart in the future.

    I realise I shouldn't believe everything I read, but, a certain railway publication has published a story saying that 44767 is to return to the NNR, to work on the Cromer services as well as regular NNR services.

    May I ask, is this enquiry to do with the new 7.25 inch gauge line under construction at Southwold Steamworks?
