First of all an apology. When I was in Chelmsford on Monday, as reported I bumped into Dave Warren and his partner, Jo. I was just aboout to board my bus to Maldon when Braintree's ex Aberdeen Volvo B10B Renown came in. I asked Dave to get some pics for me which he did - and so did Jo, who it seems is quite a photographer too. I then completely forgot to put them in the post, so my apologies to the pair of you, and I'm going to put one of each of your pics up and see if anyone can tell who took what, as I could only tell from file size. Dave - you have serious competition mate!!

Another reason to go to Dereham was I knew another stricken loco was waiting at Mid Norfolk Railway for road transport to Crewe. 57012 had been stuck in Stowmarket sidings for weeks with traction motor failure hence the many shades of grey livery. Incidentally the loco to her right isn't a 37 but the slightly shorter nosed class 45133.

Back at Norwich I finally managed to get pics of two vehicles that had been eluding me. Frstly on loan Yarmouth Dart 42921 was plying her trade on the 39's while E200 45117 awaits a new rear axle.
