The Weybourne Traction Group returns in 2017 with another eagerly anticipated Diesel Gala on the North Norfolk Railway. Over three days, come and enjoy a great day out on the NNR, with classic diesel locomotives from a variety of eras hard at work between Sheringham and Holt.

2017 will see a number of visiting engines take to the rails and as much of our coaching stock into use, visiting locomotives are expected to be arriving via Sheringham Level Crossing.
