Sheringham Level Crossing

11th March 2010

Thursday 11th March 2010 will undoubtedly mark one of the most significant days in the history fo the Society and North Norfolk Railway.

British Railways Standard Britannia Class locomotive, 70013 'Oliver Cromwell' left London Liverpool Street in the early hours, to arrive at Sheringham ready to become the first passenger train to cross over to NNR metals for over 30 years.

In the lead up to this event, a group of volunteers, aided by a contractor had worked tirelessly through the winter to lay the rails for the crossing.

The crossing now allows mainline charters and locos to be brought in by rail, which will undoubtedly bring in a massive boost to the Railway and Sheringham in general.

Nearly 10,000 lined the streets and lineside as Cromwell traversed the crossing and the event kickstarted the NNR's Spring Steam Gala over the weekend.

It will be hard to relive the euphoria of the day, but maybe, one day we will.
