It is a train with no carriages - but this string of powerful locomotives heading to a Norfolk rail event will be a transport of delight for diesel fans.
The famous five were pictured approaching Wroxham on their way up the Bittern Line to this weekend's diesel gala at the North Norfolk railway.
The event is the heritage line's celebration of the role in railway history played by the engines which followed the glamorous steam era in the 1960s.
It sees the line hosting its biggest ever collection of diesels running between Sheringham and Holt.
Star of the show will be the Peak Class engine number 45133- second from left in the line-up pictured by photographer Mike Page, better-known for his aerial shots of the region.

The gala runs from today until Sunday. For details and tickets call 01263 820800 or visit www.nnrailway.co.uk.
