The Mid-Norfolk Railway, East Anglia’s longest standard gauge heritage railway, runs the eleven miles from Dereham to Wymondham. The line is also in the process of being restored northwards from Dereham and occasional passenger trains now run as far as Worthing Crossing with the aim of reaching North Elmham for the Railway’s 25thAnniversary in 2020.
The Railway runs a mixture of steam and diesel trains from February onwards so please check our website, www.mnr.org.uk, for details of what trains are running and when. Run almost completely by volunteers, the Railway has a wide range of Special Events each year, starting in 2019 with our Diesel Event in early April. Our home fleet is augmented by several visiting locos and an intensive timetable is in operation and again, please check our website for more information. Other special events include our increasingly popular Vintage Bus Day in May, Classic Car Days in June and October, our Steam Gala at the end of June, our1940s Weekend and Beer Festival both in August and a second Diesel Event in September.
