The Prototype HST Power Car and 125 Group’s Mk3 coaches have completed a marvellous weekend of passenger running at the Mid-Norfolk Railway Spring Diesel Gala. Thank you to everyone who came along and bought tickets to travel, we hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did. The 125 Group team would like to offer special thanks to all at the Mid-Norfolk Railway for their usual warm welcome.
