Last Saturday, on the 14th February, I visited the North Norfolk Railway, for the Wissington & Irene Special.

Wissington worked at the Wissington Sugar Factory before being bought for preservation and debuted this weekend in a darker shade of green, although final lining and the addition of the nameplate had not been completed before the event.
