One of the star locos in a weekend steam gala on the North Norfolk Railway was involved in an “incident” on the heritage line.
The Britannia engine, which was billed as one of the guest stars of the event, was due to leave the line this week for check ups, confirmed attraction general manager Trevor Eady.
He said he could not comment further on the nature of the “incident” or where or when it happened, but said the loco needed to be checked before resuming its main line duties. Investigations were ongoing, and a replacement loco sought for the gala which continues this weekend.
Numbers attending the past weekend were hit by the bad weather said Mr Eady. Friday was the busiest day, mainly through enthusiasts who were not put off by the fog, but the cold kept families away over the main weekend.
