Steam trains are running again on the North Norfolk Railway after being temporarily suspended.
Only diesel trains were in service during last week because of the risk of steam locomotives catching fire during the heatwave.
The announcement was made on the railway's official website, which has now been removed.
Alex Richardson, the NNR's marketing manager, said: 'The completion of the harvest along the line has enabled us to reassess the fire risk in association with our neighbours which has led to the reintroduction of steam from Friday, August 10.
'However, we will continue to review our use of steam and diesel traction in relation to the recent weather conditions.'
