BACK ON TRACK
EMERGENCY APPEAL

The Mid Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust is launching an appeal for funds to make a significant contribution to the overall infrastructure work required to fully reopen the line.  The initial target of the appeal is £95,000.

 

This appeal forms one strand of the overall new business model and is designed to break the cycle that such work will be only funded by existing self-generated railway revenue.

The focus of the Appeal is to secure the funds required to reopen Crownthorpe Bridge to all rail traffic and other associated infrastructure work during the summer of 2023.  

Donation Packages

A special exclusive Donors Day event will be run on the 13 April 2024.  The highlight of the ‘Donors Day’ will be an exclusive return trip to Wymondham Junction from Dereham.  By running past Wymondham to Wymondham junction it gives an extra, exclusive opportunity to travel a part of the MNR running line that is not usually open to regular passenger service.  The day will also include lunch for all qualifying donors at Dereham.
