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.

The Cambridgeshire Steam Rally was launched in July 2009 by a small team of Vintage and Classic Vehicle Enthusiasts who between them have over 50 years of rally experience. The Rally took over the dates of the old dates of the old Wood Green Steam Rally at the Wood Green Animal Centre at Godmanchester Cambs., that had run for some 19 years. The small Committee relaunched the Rally on a lovely grassland site in Swavesey Cambs., next to the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway (formerly the Cambridge – St Ives railway line) where it grew nicely over the next 5 years when unfortunately the site was sold. Not to be beaten by this minor hiccup the Committee set about the task of finding a new venue in Cambridgeshire. After various enquiries the Committee were offer Quy Park at Stow-Cum-Quy just the north-east of Cambridge. ( see the Where are we Tab) In spite of all this the Rally has gone from strength to strength and is now supported by over 400 exhibitors with a good variety of Trade and a striving Craft Marquee together with many other attractions for the visitors to browse around over the weekend. (see relevant Tabs for details) […]
For seven years the Witney Vintage Rally ran at Ducklington, but in 1997 it folded. The following year, after much discussion, we formed a committee and held our first rally at the Blue Cross, Burford. We stayed at Blue Cross for four years but had to move as the rally had out grown the space available. We had one rally next to Burford Garden Centre and then had four more rallys outside Shipton-Under-Wychwood. In 2007 we were offered the use of the site at Ducklington, a 50 acre field for the show and a separate Field for car parking, we were thrilled. unfortunately, as you all can remember in July 2007 the monsoon season hit us. Luckly we evacuated the field before disaster struck. 2008 wasn’t any better and in 2009 we had a different problem, which meant we still couldn’t run.
