Members Day has had some adjustments, it is now a showcase weekend on the 8th and 9th October.
Three steam engines and one or more diesel locomotives are scheduled to be in action for this weekend showcasing the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway Society and the North Norfolk Railway. The event will see a varied schedule of passenger trains featuring the line’s unique collection of beautifully restored historic carriages.
The railway’s train of unique 4- and 6- wheeled carriages dating from Victorian times will be running along with the unique “Quad-Art” set. The LNER teak-bodied, articulated carriages have been out of service for the first half of this season receiving periodic maintenance including revarnishing and have now been returned to their 1920s glory. The characterful 4-car suburban set will also be amongst the carriages in use along with an LNER buffet car dating from 1937 and restored to the distinctive “blood & custard” livery used by British Railways in the 1950s and 60s.
Refreshments will be available at each station and onboard certain trains which include the art-deco Gresley bar car.
A frequent train service will operate between Sheringham, Weybourne and Holt between approximately 9.30am and 4.30pm. Full details to follow
