Hundreds of people flocked to north Norfolk over the weekend to ride a railcar that last carried passengers 36 years ago.

The railcar made in 1958 has been restored by father and son Paul and Chris Moxon from Beeston Regis.

M56182 is a Class 104 driving coach that was used on services between Norwich, Cromer and Sheringham in the late 1970s.

The newly restored M56182 will run from Sheringham's original station as part of the North Norfolk Railway’s autumn service until the end of October.

Co-owner and restorer, Chris Moxon, said: “We are delighted to return M56182 to action and very pleased that the vehicle has proved popular with passengers – particularly the first class saloon which affords an excellent driver’s-eye view of the line ahead.”

Class 104s were built by the Birmingham Railway Carriage & Wagon Company as part of the national transition from steam to diesel trains.
