The Story of the North Norfolk Railway DVD




Full story of how the ‘Poppy Line’ was purchased and restored as Norfolk’s leading heritage railway.

Filmed over a number of years, this story looks back at the very beginnings of the line as the MGNJR Society took over the five-mile line from Sheringham to Holt.

We see rare archive film of the final days in British Railways’ ownership including the very last freight train to depart from Sheringham and Anglia Television’s Bob Wellings at a derelict Weybourne Station in 1966, plus the last days at Melton Constable.

Full of nostalgia and up-to-date footage of steam operations over the heritage line with all classes of locomotives.

Dads Army recreation days are viewed at Weybourne bringing some humour to the railway which is now one of the most important attractions in Norfolk.

Approx. 68 minutes.
