The chairman of the North Norfolk Railway has died after a short illness.
Clive Morris, who was 78, was a driving force at the heritage attraction which he joined in 1981 after a high level career with the Central Electricity Board.
He used his engineering training and workmanship skills to help with the railway's carriage and wagon restoration, particularly the Quad-Art set and King's Cross suburban four.
Mr Morris was also previously secretary of the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway Society and involved in the early restoration of the B12 locomotive.
He was also an active member of the Heritage Railway Association and a keen railway modeller.

'He did not suffer fools gladly, but he is assured a place in the history of the NNR and will be sorely missed.'
