The M&GN Joint Railway Society

The M&GN Society works to preserve, display and operate a wide range of historical artefacts. Many members are also active volunteers of the North Norfolk Railway. The Society owns five locomotives including the B12 and J15 and many unique carriages and wagons, such as the Quad-Art set.

The Society also runs the William Marriott Museum at Holt and many members are active volunteers on the North Norfolk Railway.

There are over 3,000 members of the Midland and Great Northern (M&GN) Joint Railway Society. It was founded in October 1959 after the extensive closure of the M&GN system and laid the foundations of the North Norfolk Railway.

The Society is the supporting charity of, and major shareholder in, the North Norfolk Railway and is East Anglia’s biggest railway charity.
