HRA 2016 Loco Restoration Award Winner

Now on the North Norfolk Railway for the summer

The 76084 Locomotive Company Limited was formed in September 1997 after purchase of the locomotive by a small group of enthusiast who saw 76084's potential. The main objective of the Company was to restore the locomotive and tender by the issue of shares. When 76084 returned to traffic on the North Norfolk Railway in July 2013 over £750,000 had been spent on her restoration. This is thanks to the contribution of approximately 200 shareholders scattered around the UK and overseas. The North Norfolk Railway became worthy partners to the restoration when they injected cash into the final stages ensuring a speedy completion.

It was always the Company's intention to go main line. We are both pleased and proud that we have managed to raise a further £100,000 in funding to equip 76084 with TPWS, OTMR and GSM-R technologies and ensure she was mechanically sound for both her light engine and loaded test runs successfully performed in September 2016 and subsequent main line work.

  • Main Line Debut Success

    For the first time since withdrawal from British Railways service back in 1967 76084 ventured onto the national network in early August 2016. The 4 trips of the North Norfolkman dining train from Cromer were a huge success.
