Delay to Reopening in 2021

We reopened the railway on 3rd July 2021.

18th June 2021

The Mid-Norfolk Railway has announced that as a result of the latest Government Covid-19 announcement that the reopening of the railway for public passenger service will now be delayed till 3 July.

“The Trust Council has sadly decided that the railway must postpone our reopening until 3 July. This was not a decision we have made lightly and we understand it is disappointing for our passenger and indeed our members and working volunteers and staff who have worked so hard to reopen. The Trust Council however recognises that we want to be able to put on a service that meets the expectations of our passengers and is also safe for them and our own staff. All Heritage railways are different and at this current time we will find it extremely difficult to deliver the level of service that we would want to provide to our customers due to the nature of our stations and our rolling stock.” Charlie Robinson Chairman, Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust

The railway will now be completing some additional Covid-19 precautions in line with Government requirements before reopening on the 3 July. The initial service will be a steam hauled trained using the newly refurbished Maroon liveried heritage coaching stock.

Tickets will initially only be available via the Mid-Norfolk Railway website at Further announcements about the full reopening will follow in due course and will be dependant of future Government announcements.
