Tuesdays 21 & 28 June, 13, 20 & 27 September
The North Norfolk Railway offers far more than just a train ride! Grab your tickets, watch the guard wave his green flag, listen for the sound of the whistle and a whoosh of steam as you set off on a timeless journey through some of Norfolk’s most stunning coastal scenery and beautiful countryside.
Lovingly-restored steam and heritage diesel trains transport passengers on an 11 mile return journey between the delightful Victorian resort of Sheringham and the smart Georgian town of Holt. Make a day of it with our great value rover tickets that are valid for unlimited travel allowing you to hop on and off all day! We recommend booking in advance and passengers doing so receive a generous discount on their fares.
The heritage railway is fondly known as the ‘Poppy Line’ after the 19th Century poet and theatre critic Clement Scott coined the term “Poppyland” referring to the unspoilt coastal area around Sheringham where poppies grow in abundance.
On these special days, our unique vintage train of 4- and 6- wheeled carriages dating from Victorian times will run in addition to the YELLOW TIMETABLE meaning you can see and travel on three contrasting historic trains. Two of our powerful steam locomotives will be in action, one hauling the vintage train and a second pulling a train of restored carriages dating from the 1950s and 60s. A heritage railcar dating from the 1960s will also be running, allowing passengers to enjoy a driver’s-eye view and savour panoramic views of the delightful countryside, much of which is designated as being of outstanding natural beauty.
Please note: the vintage train will be diesel-hauled on Tuesday 28 September
There’s so much to see at the stations and in the surrounding area . . .
Discounted fares are available when you book online in advance
