Vandalism in Dereham Yard

The Mid-Norfolk Railway is extremely sad that over the weekend of May 1st - 4th, we have suffered an extensive vandalism attack at Dereham.


Extensive damage has been done to a number of vehicles, including our recently restored and painted brake coach which the railway has spent nearly £45K restoring and our Blue DMU.


Everyone at the railway is shocked and devastated by this, it couldn't have come at a worse time when the current crisis means the railway has no revenue income from visitors.

Norfolk Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious, or holds CCTV footage from the area at the time.


Anyone with information should contact PC Sophie Webster at Dereham Police Station on 101, quoting crime reference number 36/29074/20.


Alternatively contact Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555111.
