A 60-year-old steam locomotive is expected to make its way through East Anglia this week on its way to a heritage railway.
British Railways locomotive No. 76084 is booked to travel from the National Railway Museum to the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) on Thursday.
The engine has been based at the Sheringham to Holt tourist attraction since being restored in 2013.
It is fitted with equipment allowing it to work on the main line and earlier this year hauled enthusiast specials in the north west.
Now the engine is returning to the NNR to be part of its fleet for 2017.
