New for 2022, our Green timetable days are running with preserved second-generation BR Railbus 'Pacer' 142061 between Dereham, Thuxton and Hoe crossing.

With two timetabled visits to Hoe Crossing each day, this is the first time this section of line north of Dereham has seen regular services throughout the year since the British Railways October 1964 closure of the line, 57 years ago!

We are currently offering a great value special £10 Pacer fare for adults, which includes all day travel and allows TWO children to travel for free with each adult.​​
