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 […]

Planning has now reached an advanced stage for this year’s Steam and Vintage Rally to be held at the Showground on 13th & 14th August. In addition to all the regular attractions and exhibits ranging from the majestic steam Showmans’ engines to vintage bicycles there will be some unusual and very interesting items making their debut at Driffield. Among these for the first time ever in the UK and, probably for the first time anywhere since they were built in the USA in the 1920s, there will be two working Doble steam cars appearing together. Only 15 of the 45 cars built still survive worldwide and these rare cars, described as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of steam cars, were the most advanced steam car ever made. The two cars are model D2 of 1921, the oldest Doble still in existence, and E22 of 1925. This latter car was new to the multi-millionaire aviator and film producer Howard Hughes and is reputed to have been timed at 133m.p.h by the Texas police. Another exhibit making its first public appearance will be a Rolls Royce ‘Griffon’ aero engine from a 1940s ‘Shackleton’ bomber. This working 37 litre, V12, engine will be demonstrated regularly […]
