Train at Mells Crossing
Train at Mells Crossing
Easterling Steam Special approaching the Wenhaston Crossing at Mells from Halesworth. In steam days, this train ran from Lowestoft to London Liverpool Street daily.

The loco is an ex-LNER B1 4-6-0 No 61264. This is the same train that crashed into the buffers at Norwich in 2004 causing disappointment for hundreds of people who gathered to see it.

After withdrawal from Colwick in 1965, 61264 was used for a while as a stationary boiler, and then sent to Barry for scrapping (The only LNER engine to reach this yard). Rescued in 1976 a long-term rebuild eventually saw 61264 successfully in steam again in 1996.
