*First visitor announced for MNR diesel gala*

We are pleased to announce the first of a long line of visiting locomotives (and stock) for the MNR's Spring diesel gala which will run Friday 1st - Sunday 3rd April.

With kind permission of the NRM and in conjunction with the HST Group, the star attraction, making it's first visit away from home, will be the Prototype HST power car 41001 as well as newly repainted Mk3 rolling stock. We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen to be this iconic and popular vehicle's first visit and alongside the MNR's distinctly 1970s and 80s authentic rolling stock will look right at home. Our 12 miles of line will give the distinctive Paxman Valenta a chance to stretch it's legs.

We have a number of other visitors to announce over the coming weeks and if all goes to plan will see one of the largest events we have ever put on. We are also hoping the event will be the return to service of an MNR stalwart and popular loco but more on that later.

Full details at: click on the banner or the icon of the HST for the diesel gala information. Online tickets are now available offering a substantial discount in advance.

It's now easier than ever to get to the MNR with the opening of the dual carriageway A11/M11 all the way from London and the M25 to Wymondham and East Midlands Trains run direct services from Wymondham to Ely, Peterborough and the north of England.

More details to come.

James, MNR.
