E. with semaphore signals still in operation 232, 050, 519, 213, 078 pass on trains bound for Gt. Yarmouth from Sheffield, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds and Birmingham.

The Bonus Footage was shot on the G. E. at Palgrave A. H. B. between Diss and Mellis on 15 October. The first train through had not been cautioned and the Pilotman can be seen on the first wrong line train.

The scenes at Audley End crossing between Diss and Tivetshall were shot on 26 November. Here the sight of a 47 approaching in the evening dusk with
a mournful whistle cry makes for very moving scenes.
