MAIN LINE GRESLEY ‘N2’ NOT FAR OFF

Steam Railway (UK) - - Down Main -

Not long now un­til ‘N2’ No. 1744 hits the main line – al­beit on a fairly quiet bit of the net­work. The for­mer King’s Cross 0-6-2T is hav­ing its elec­tronic giz­mos fit­ted ready for the start of the North Nor­folk Rail­way’s sea­son of Cromer din­ing trains on May 16. A wider re­turn to the ‘big rail­way’ than the roughly 3½ miles of for­mer Mid­land & Great North­ern is now pro­posed af­ter the for­mer No. 69523’s forth­com­ing over­haul. The ‘ticket’ on the Gresley Society en­gine runs out next year; the Great North­ern ma­chine cel­e­brates its cen­te­nary in 2021.
