September will remain in our memories for many years as the month M56182 returned to traffic at its launch event on the 9th. The vehicle then went on to successfully operate on a further 11 days clocking up 690 miles.
During the month we repaired three teething issues including a non responsive tone on the horn (now back to two tones!), an irritating clicking noise on the bogie mounted dynamo (a pulley had worked loose) and finally the commissioning of the No2 heater (which hadn't successfully been finished as part of the main restoration).
More running is planned for October which will be the last month of North Norfolk railcar action for some time.
