As you may already be aware if you have been following our website or social
media updates lately, we have been affected by the unusually dry weather which
has hit the UK over the past few weeks. These conditions are forecast to
continue in Norfolk through August and into September.

We have assessed the risks of operating a large number of steam locomotives
on an intensive timetable in these conditions, and a number of concerns have
been raised.
The Railway wishes to do everything possible to avoid the risk of lineside
fires damaging neighbouring property which includes a site of special
scientific interest along the Kelling stretch of our line.

Taking this into account, we have made the difficult decision to re-schedule
this event to Friday 12th October – Sunday 14th October which will be a Home Fleet Running Weekend.

By this time, we hope that the weather will have returned to more ‘normal’ conditions.

We do not take this decision to postpone lightly. However, taking into account
all the contributing factors, we feel that a date amendment is the wisest
decision in order to deliver this year's Autumn Steam Gala to the highest
possible standards.
We are in the process of making contact with all those who have pre-purchased tickets already to discuss the options, so if you have not been contacted already, please expect a telephone call from our team.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Further Steam Gala updates will be available on our official Facebook page and
our website.

Thank you for your support.


The Autumn Steam Gala will now be taking place between Friday 12th - Sunday 14th October.
