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 longest 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.

The Mid-Norfolk Railway has has a ever growing collection of heritage diesels, carriages and wagons which just gets bigger each year. When you go back you can see what has been done since last time you came.

Some other preserved railways have had things that have been ongoing for years, not The Mid-Norfolk Railway, just gets them done.
