The Mid Norfolk Railway Diesel Gala
Sunday, 21st March, 2004

The Mid Norfolk railway held their third annual Diesel Gala on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st March 2004. We managed to visit on the Sunday. A day of very changeable weather. A quite different railway in my opinion, not (that I noticed) a steam engine in sight. Plenty of multiple units to be seen and some visiting traction from Freightliner and Cotswold Rail in the shape of 47847 and 47316 respectively.
