The Mid-Norfolk Railway, which hopes eventually to become one of the longest preserved lines in the country.
• An excellent and comprehensive article from the Industrial Railway Record on the J94 and the 18inch Hunslet from which it was developed.
• During the 1960s some Austerity tanks, including ours, were taken back to the Hunslet works in Leeds and rebuilt, incorporating certain modifications according to the ideas of an Argentinian engineer, L.D.Porta. In the process, a loco that wasn't particularly pretty to start with, actually became even more ugly! This fascinating article is fairly technical but very well illustrated and quite readable. There are some remarkably intimate photos of the loco's innards!
