The annual Society members and NNR Shareholders day is fast approaching.
As in previous years there will be an intense service with the B12, Y14, Wissington and the class 31 in service, due to popular request, engines have been time tabled so the 'driver for a fiver' can take place on platform 2 at Sheringham, on engines between trains, where you can drive one of the engines out of the station, up to the signal box and back.
We will have the Quads, the vintage set and the mainline set with the 'Muddle and Go Knowhere' bar in operation.
At Weybourne, the ever popular shed tours, led by stalwart Society member and shed volunteer Alistair McDougal, will be taking place. This will give you an excellent insight into all the building work and expansion of the shed facilities over the past 12 months, as well as seeing some of the outstanding engineering and restoration work that is currently in progress.
Holt will have the wonderful museum open, which, as ever, has changing displays to show off some of the thousands of artefacts we have also the dray will be on display and the M&GN lorry, which if the Chairman has time, I am sure may be seen going between the stations.
Please come and have a great day out, make sure you bring your membership cards to gain free travel, you will be surprised at how much has changed again on the North Norfolk Railway in the past year and even more changes will be happening over the next 12 months.

Don't forget our Vintage Train is once again running on Tuesday 18th and Tuesday 25th August on the North Norfolk Railway. The train itself consists of GER No.7, M&GN 129 and BYP 6843, hauled by our very own Y14 (564).
There is no need to pre-book to travel on the Vintage train, just buy a Rover Ticket and pay a £1 supplement on the train to travel on a piece of East Anglian history.
Trains depart Sheringham at 11:00, 12:40 and 14:20. The return services from Holt depart at 11:47, 13:55 and 15:07.
