A range of items of MNR rolling stock, including visiting Pannier tank 9466, at Dereham, 2009

The Mid-Norfolk Railway has a large collection of heritage rolling stock.

Locomotives and multiple units[edit]

Steam locomotives and shunters[edit]

No steam locomotives are presently based on the line, with the Mid-Norfolk hiring steam locomotives based on other railways for use during the Summer season and most remaining services utilising diesel traction. Sentinel 4wVBT 9596 "George"[1] and Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns 0-4-0ST 7818 "Castle Donington Power Station No. 2" are stored in the former yard at Yaxham, independently of the MNR. Details of locomotives hired in for the Summer season can be found towards the bottom of this page.

The line is also home to the frames of a Great Eastern Railway tender, fitted with an original axle from LNER Class B17 2802 'Walsingham', and a London and North Eastern Railway tender which have been secured by the Sandringham Locomotive Company project, who intend to build a replica of a B17 locomotive.[2]

2525 Cockerill 0-4-0 Tram Locomotive Green Built in 1907, was stored out of use within sight of passing trains on the Mid-Norfolk and listed in the published stocklist for the line. It has now been restored and has operated on the MNR, though based at Yaxham and currently on loan to the Mid Suffolk Light Railway.

3193 'Norfolk Regiment' Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0 Saddle Tank Locomotive Black In 2009 the Norfolk Heritage Steam Railway Ltd. purchased locomotive 68012 from the Lavender Line,[3] actually Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST 3193, which had been painted to represent a member of LNER Class J94. Although it is hoped to operate the loco on the Mid-Norfolk Railway in the future,[4] at this time it is under restoration on a private site adjacent to Yaxham Station. Once restored, the locomotive will carry its original works number and be named Norfolk Regiment.[5]

37003 'Dereham Neatherd High School 1912 - 2012' BR Co-Co Class 37 Rail blue Built by English Electric Vulcan Foundry, as works number EE/VF2866/D582, 37003 was released to Stratford depot (30A) as D6703 on 28 December 1960. In April 1963 the locomotive was named "First East Anglian Regiment", but the name was never unveiled. At Tinsley in 1989 37003 was given the unofficial 'painted-on' nameplate "TIGER MOTH", which was carried until she was overhauled at Doncaster in 1992. 37003 was withdrawn from traffic in 1994 and stored at Bescot and Crewe, until purchase by the Class 37 Locomotive Group in 1998. 37003 is currently being restored to allow for mainline charter work.[6] In 2012 the locomotive was named after Dereham Neatherd High School, with full name plates and the school crest. Nameplates removed in 2014.

It was named Aldeburgh Festival by Dr Elizabeth Legg-Schwarzkopf, President of the Friends of Aldeburgh Festival on 8 June 1984, the nameplates being removed in 1993. The locomotive was withdrawn from service in October 2002 after three years in storage.[8]

In 1984 Ramillies was repainted in a variation of BR Blue by staff at Plymouth Laira depot. 50019 had visited East Anglia prior to preservation, being stabled at March depot in January 1987.[9]

Latterly used on Gatwick Express services. The locomotive was repaired and repainted at Stewart's Lane Depot before being moved by rail to Dereham - hauled, under power, by classmate 73136 in September 2008.[10] Primarily designed as an electric locomotive, but in use under diesel power only.

Multiple units and railcars[edit]

- BR Class 100 56301 Rail blue Built in 1957. Used for static display - although proposed for eventual restoration. Trailer car 56301 was the first diesel multiple unit car to enter preservation in 1969, originally being used at the Chasewater Railway, before spending time at the Uranium Fuel Center, Salwick, and then having a period of storage at the King's Lynn Sugar Factory (between 1996 and 1997, while associated with the aborted National Diesel Railcar Museum project).[11][12]

L836 BR Class 101 51434 + 59117 + 51503 Blue Grey 51434 and 51503 came from set L836 built in 1959, the last Class 101 based at Norwich where it was used as a route learner. 59117 formed part of set L840 at Reading. They were formerly preserved at the Swindon and Cricklade Railway, owned by railwayman Matthew Smith. At his bequest they moved to Dereham in June '02, under the care of the Class 50 Locomotive Association, and the set has been posthumously named after him.[13][14][15]

The unit can seat 65 second class passengers, originally divided between 45 smoking seats and 20 non-smoking and with a 25 cwt luggage capacity. As delivered power was supplied by two 150 b.h.p.British United Traction "A" Type diesel engines.[19] The unit is currently under restoration.[20]

BR Mk2 carriages[edit]

The backbone of the MNR's passenger fleet is formed by British Rail Mark 2 carriages. The Mark 2 coaches of the Mid-Norfolk Railway are divided into three sets. One rake of vacuum-braked maroon liveried coaches, and another of air-braked stock in blue-grey livery. The project to create a complete set of coaches in the blue-grey livery introduced in 1964 was a first in preservation.[29] Several of the coaches feature Edward Pond murals[30] fitted during refurbishment when in Network SouthEast service. The third set, of main line mostly registered coaches that are owned by a group based on the line, were the first in preservation to wear InterCity Executive livery.

Former Mid-Norfolk Railway rolling stock[edit]

Since the preservation reopening of the line, several items of rolling stock have worked or been based on the Mid-Norfolk Railway, but have since departed. A number of vehicles have also been stripped and partially (or fully) scrapped on the railway. This section details those items (excluding visiting charter and freight locomotives).
