 The Back On Track
Emergency App


The railway launched an appeal for funds to pay for track and bridge repair work along the line. Further information, click here.

Track and bridge repairs are required at Wicklewood urgently before passenger trains can run through to Wymondham Abbey again. We are currently running roundtrips of 12 miles between Dereham & Thuxton until further notice.
