Imagine the excitement of a Steam Train journey to Santaland! Our magical Santa Special services run on various dates and times in the weeks before Christmas, details of which are below. They depart from Sheringham station and take passengers through some of Norfolk’s most beautiful winter scenery whilst the adults are served sherry and mince pies, children receive a chocolate and a soft drink. Santa is waiting by his open fire at Weybourne Station (specially transformed into Santaland!), ready to give all children a warm welcome, both young and old. Each infant (under 1 year) and child (1 year to 14 years) will receive an appropriate present for their age. After a period of time looking around the station, passengers reboard the train for their journey back to Sheringham. With professional entertainers, quality presents and of course a ride behind a steam train, Christmas turns into a wonderful experience on the North Norfolk Railway’s unique Santa Specials. Explore Christmas Craft Fair for those extra special Christmas gifts. Located behind the station buildings. Please note it is not possible to take card payments in the craft fair so cash or cheque only, please! Please note that Santa Special trains travel between […]

The first Much Marcle Steam Rally was held on the 19th & 20th July 1986. The Herefordshire Traction Engine & Vintage Club was formed. The current site became available when the Ross on Wye Steam Engine Society moved to the Upton on Severn area and a decision was then made to form the Herefordshire Traction Engine & Vintage Club. There are members in the club who have been with us since 1986, Tom Walker and Richard Hesbrook being two of them. They have seen many changes over the last 27 years, the first rally programme consisting of 10 pages and costing 30p. The 2008 programme consisted of 54 pages and costed £1. Over the last 25 years the rally has grown tremendously and we have a wonderful number of exhibitors and supporters who look to come back year after year. Which is testament to the hard work put in by the committee and members over the years.
