Memorial train sweeps through Stamford
Rail enthusiasts were treated to a flying visit by the Nigel Dobbing Memorial Train which steamed through Stamford Railway Station on Sunday, March 17.
The 1945-built steam locomotive 35018 British India Line was pulling the train in tribute to Mr Dobbing, a leading figure in the heritage rail industry who set up the King’s Lynn-based Railway Touring Company.
On board were about 80 members of his family, friends, colleagues and people who supported him over the years.
The train was travelling between King's Lynn and Melton Mowbray, where a memorial plaque was unveiled in the station waiting room.
