Trowland

Trevor Nunn's new layout "Trowland" is the terminus of a Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway branchline in North Norfolk. The layout is set firmly in the late 19th century.

Black, Hawthorn 0-6-0ST number 6A.  This loco, built in 1881, had been sold off by the M&GN to a brickworks by 1895. 

M & GN 2-4-0 number 3A is arriving here with the branch goods train. The real loco was rebuilt from an ex North Cornwall Mineral Railways 0-6-0T as a 2-4-0 in 1891 at Melton Constable works. It lasted until 1899. 

Number 3A again.  Shunting the yard.

 

Midland and Great Northern Railway 4-4-0T number 9.  The real loco was built by Hudswell, Clarke in 1879 and lasted until 1932. On Trowland it hauls the branch passenger train. 

A busy day at Trowland.  The yard is full with a newly arrived Passenger service at the platform and a goods train weaiting to leave from the loop.

Number 9 has now run around its train and is now ready to depart again for the Junction.
