Vintage locomotive The Black Prince is set to steam through north Norfolk this half term.

The no. 92203 engine, built in 1959, is a regular sight on the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) and will again roar along the coastline between February 10 and 18.

The NNR will also operate its vintage diesel unit which boasts panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

The railway’s stations have been lovingly restored and offer much to discover.

Guests are invited to take a trip back in time, from the last days of steam at 1950s BR Sheringham, drop into the 1930s with the LNER at Holt and go all the way back to the Edwardian period at Weybourne.

The NNR operated on a 5.5 mile preserved line and it offers a ‘hop on, hop off rover ticket’ allowing guests to explore the stops along the line.
