Come and enjoy the 1940s weekend on the North Norfolk Railway, our most popular event for adults by far!

Over the years this event has attracted more and more visitors and more and more exhibitors. It is widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People who attended last year were booking accommodation before they left as they enjoyed it so much!

Come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Don't forget your gas mask and ration books!

Some photos from our 2012 event can be found here
