MNR Summer 2020 special events & trains cancelled

The Mid-Norfolk Railway has today announced that all of the special events trains for the summer 2020 running season have now been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.


The special trains that the railway was planning to run this summer that are affected are the Cream & High Tea, Fish & Chip, Rock ‘n’ Rail and the Jazz Trains. In addition, the 1940s Weekend, the Beer Festival that were due to be held in August and the Railcar Association event in October are also now cancelled.


“The railway is continuing to monitor the evolving situation and is following the Government's instructions regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. After investigation and consideration, the railway has decided that we are unable to host any of our special train services or events which include the serving of food and drink this summer. This has been a very difficult decision to make and has not been taken lightly, however the safety of our customers, staff and volunteers must always come first.” Charlie Robinson, MNR Chairman

The railway will therefore offer all of our passengers, who have already booked the opportunity to carry over their existing booking to 2021 at 2020 prices or receive a refund of the ticket price. All passengers will be contacted directly by the railway via email and those who decide to opt to rebook in 2021 will be given priority once the 2021 timetable is established.


Developments at the railway this year mean that it is expected that a full and expanded range of special trains will be run during the 2021 running season.


Our website will be updated with information as soon as possible.
