the NVR steam weekend a week later.

From the North Norfolk Railway website
60163 Tornado is due to leave the railway on Wednesday 12th September at around 13:10, but please be aware this could be subject to change.

Anyone any idea on the timing of the move from Ely to Peterborough on Friday or Norwich to Ely after the tour on the 13th?

Thanks for that info.  I have used that site using a bookmark on the tours page.  I did not realise that it had loco movements as well.

I understand this was due to industrial action by ASLEF. However, it meant that Tornado arrrived at the NVR on Wednesday instead of the scheduled Friday.
