A special outing of 1960s locomotives left Norwich on Saturday morning for a special charity charter.
The four Class 37 engines left the railway station on Saturday morning to raise cash for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).
The special service, formed of four MkII carriages top-and-tailed by two Class 37 diesel locomotives, ran fans from Norwich to Ely and from Norwich to London.
The Class 37s have been in regular use for almost two years on the Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft lines.
Two-hundred tickets were sold for the event, while a raffle was also held on the journey.
