More diesels at the North Norfolk Railway

Last Saturday I persuaded Jan to accompany me to the Diesel Gala at the North Norfolk Railway.

I'm too young to have a real love of steam locos, but I have strong memories of travelling on lots of diesel hauled trains in the British Rail days of the 1970s.

Many of the journeys would have been from Shenfield to Liverpool Street, and then Euston to Manchester Piccadilly (especially while I was a student at Salford University).

I don't know what classes of loco I would have encountered; I just liked the noise and smell, and the sense of sheer power that exuded from them.

Don't ask me what class any of these is, I have no idea.
