(1) Tony Davies comments: A Stephenson Locomotive Society (organised by the Newcastle Centre) party travelled on this Merrymaker. A road coach was organised to collect passengers from Thetford and take them to Bressingham Museum and Gardens however the driver forgot to stop at Thetford, outward – with the connivance of the signalmen the train was halted at Eccles Road where the SLS party joined the road coach, diverted from Thetford. We had from 1pm to 6pm at Bressingham.
