We still have some seats available for our music trains, always popular with onboard bar and live music on the move and at stops along the way.
This year's April Fool news story.
We are pleased to announce our first successful trial of our new London Kings Cross to Dereham commuter service which will start from the June timetable.
Using recently preserved and refurbished Intercity Mark 3 coaches, the trains will feature an on board buffet car, departing Dereham at 0600 Mondays- Fridays and returning from London Kings Cross at 1802
Full details of our service and advance tickets can be bought at http://www.mnr.org.uk/aprilfools/
Sunday 1st & Monday 2nd April - D5343 will work the 13:15 & 15:45 departures from Dereham and the 14:30 & 16:45 departures from Wymondham Abbey.
This will be the last chance to Ride behind D5343 before she heads home to the Gloucester Warwickshire Railway.
With thanks to the Cotswold Mainline Diesel Group for the loan of 26043 CMDG.
A great example of just how far we have come. This is the line looking towards Swanton Road in Dereham in 2001 & 2018.
