September 2018 Picture of the Month

The driver of ex-British Railways 9F 2-10-0 locomotive No.92203 'Black Prince' awaits the guard's whistle at Sheringham Station on the North Norfolk Raulway before starting the journey back towards Holt. Built at Swindon in 1959 and scrapped by BR only 8 years later, the locomotive was bought for £3,000 by the eminent wildlife artist, the late David Shepherd, who named it 'Black Prince' and regularly steamed it on his East Somerset Railway. 92203 was bought by the North Norfolk Railway in 2015.
