August Dates for Muddle Bar

18th August 2014

The Muddle and Go Nowhere Real Ale Bar Car will be out in traffic for several dates at the end of August.

Starting this coming Friday 22nd August, the vehicle will be in service throughout the August Bank Holiday weekend with draught Real Ale on tap (whilst stocks last!) and all number of other delights. The bar now serves Spirits too, so even those with finer tastes are now catered for.

Then on the following weekend, the vehicle will be in traffic for the North Norfolk Railway's Grand Steam Gala. The gala hosts seven steam locomotives, including new NNR resident B1 61306 Mayflower which arrives on the Railway today.

The bar car will also be in service for the 1940s Weekend and our 5th Annual Members' Day on 4th October. Dates for August are as follows:

Friday 22nd
Saturday 23rd (August Bank Holiday)
Sunday 24th (August Bank Holiday)
Monday 25th (August Bank Holiday)

Friday 29th (Grand Steam Gala)
Saturday 30th (Grand Steam Gala)
Sunday 31st (Grand Steam Gala)

2014 Members' Day

7th August 2014

Full details have been announced for our fifth annual Members' Day, which will take place on Saturday 4th October 2014.

Members' Day is our way of saying thank you to all our 3000 members and all NNR shareholders, with free travel all day to such supporters.

A special timetable will be in place for the day, which will see as many Society engines and items of rolling stock in service as possible. B12 8572 and Class 31 D5631 will be in traffic, as will our Quad-Art Set No.74. Wissington, which will be visiting from the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway, is expected to haul the Vintage Set. The focus of the day will be on working to top up the remainder of the Y14:2014 Appeal, which currently stands 30% short of the target. We must raise these funds in order to steam our J15/Y14, on which much work has already taken place for the most full and comprehensive overhaul the engine has ever received since being built.

The Society shop at Weybourne will of course be open, as will be the Muddle and Go Nowhere Real Ale Bar Car. We hope to also offer visitors shed tours of the rapidly expanding Weybourne works, subject to ongoing construction works being in a safe condition.

To obtain free travel, please bring your membership or shareholder's card with you on the day, and present it at Sheringham or Holt ticket office to obtain a complimentary ticket on the day of travel. You must obtain a ticket, as presentation of a card alone is not sufficient for free travel.

On the Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September, the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway will be hosting their 'Light Railway Gala', which will feature the Society's 0-6-0ST 1700 Wissington alongside two visiting 0-4-0ST Bagnall locomotives, No.2452 Jubilee and No.2565 which will be visiting from the East Anglian Railway Museum and Northamptonshire respectively.
