The Mid-Norfolk Railway runs its trains between Dereham and Wymondam at the present (2012). The railway is also getting ready to head north towards the railway station at County School which the MNR already owns.
The track is intact to North Elmham but is derelict. Work is now under way to clear the track and make it fit for trains. From North Elmham about a mile of new track will also need to be laid to County School.

The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust
It was only around 1995 that The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust started to restore this line between Dereham and Wymondham. It now has 17.5 miles of track (11.5 miles is in use) which when its is all in use, will be one of longer preserved railways in the UK. A lot of the other preserved railways had already had a twenty year start when they started.
Trains run now between Dereham and Wymondham. The next section from Dereham to County School is next. There is a even longer term aim to reach as far as Fakenham. The way they are going, they may well get there.
