An historic steam locomotive has arrived at Norwich Railway Station ahead of a journey through Norfolk tomorrow morning.

The 60009 Union of South Africa, built in 1937, will be pulling out of Norwich station at 8.05am before making its way to York via Wymondham, Attleborough, Thetford, Brandon, March and Peterborough.

The 'York Yuletide Express' will then pass through Grantham, Newark and Retford before stopping at Doncaster for the steam locomotive to take on water and making a fast run along the East Coast Main Line to York.

For more pictures of the locomotive's journey see the website tomorrow, as well as Friday's papers.
