Step onboard the North Norfolkman Dining Train and enjoy dining as you travel behind steam on the mainline!
Your Dining trip will start as soon as you step onboard with a complimentary drink on arrival. The North Norfolkman will leave Sheringham Station heading over the level crossing and onto the national mainline network. The first part of the journey is along what remains of the old Midland & Great Northern line, skirting the picturesque North Norfolk Coastline, passing by the glacial remnants of ‘The Beeston Bump’ and continuing through the delightful station of West Runton with its national award-winning gardens and then on to the historical seaside town of Cromer.
At Cromer, the Dining train takes a short stop while the mainline train undertakes its regular service along the single track line, so there will be time to stretch your legs if you wish.
Steam will be in charge for the return to Sheringham and then onwards, bound for Holt, with the County’s finest coastal vistas on the right and rolling countryside on the left, one of the country views is of the grisly named ‘Dead Mans’. As you approach Weybourne you will see ‘Weybourne Mill’ complete with its four double shuttered sails and the coast guard cottages with their road running off the cliffs.
You will arrive at Holt station and, after a brief stop, the Dining Train then heads back down the track to Sheringham Station where we will bid you farewell until the next time.
The North Norfolkman travels with a fully licensed bar on board which serves a variety of wines, spirits, real ales, lagers, ciders and soft drinks.
Trains are available to board from 11.30am, departing at 12 noon. You will arrive back in Sheringham at approximately 3.00 – 3.15pm.
Only certain of our historic locomotives are permitted to work on Network Rail and it is the nature of vintage machinery that occasionally repairs may be required at short notice. If suitable locomotives are not available to work the train to Cromer, lunch will be served during two return journeys from Sheringham to Holt.
A welcome drink of local beer, cider or apple juice is included in the price, along with a bottle of water on the table.
Other drinks and wines can be ordered and paid for on the day.
