Mid-Norfolk Railway

The Mid-Norfolk Railway was opened as a section of the Lynn & Dereham Railway in 1847. Apart from changing owners after the Grouping of 1923 and Nationalisation in 1947, the line continued in much the same way for over a century. However, falling numbers of passenger traffic led to the withdrawal of passenger services in 1965. Goods services continued to run for a number of years, so although there was an interest in resurrecting heritage passenger services, nothing could be done.

When freight traffic came to an end in 1995, the railway's preservation trust took action. Later that year the first services began on a small section of the line. These proved to be an immediate success, and the line has managed to extend to its current length.
