What was I photographing on this day in previous years?
Five years ago it was this beautiful steam locomotive at the North Norfolk Railway (NNR). 8572 is a London & North Eastern Railway (LNER) class B12 4-6-0, built in 1928 by Beyer, Peacock & Co Ltd and withdrawn from British Railways service in 1961.
It arrived at the NNR in 1967 and was finally returned to steam in 1995 after a long and difficult restoration.
I’ve spent many hours photographing heritage railways in general and the North Norfolk in particular and I’m looking forward to more of the same this summer.
I should point out that this image was captured with the aid of a NNR lineside photographic pass.

I’ve mentioned before the idea of photographing all the different ways in which house numbers are displayed, ancient and modern, simple or elaborate… maybe it’s time I got on with it?
