The Mid-Norfolk Railway runs Heritage Steam and Diesel train services from the market town of Dereham to Wymondham in Norfolk, just outside Norwich. It is run entirely by volunteers, and operates a number of Special Events throughout the year.
We came to The Gin Train Experience. The volunteers on the railway were friendly and helpful. However, the Gin Train (which was run by Rail Events) was not so good.
We were all in a marquee, which was well overcrowded, on a warm afternoon. We...More

The station at Wymondham is beautifully maintained. Lovely planted raised beds and the staff really friendly and helpful. The trains in need of TLC but the journey interesting with some stations and countryside to view. Dereham Station is not so interesting but does have a...More

It was quite exciting for the kids...More

I would reccomend a visit to this heritage line to you as it is the only ex GE line where you get a decent ride. The station at Dereham is full of interest and has a well stocked shop with items of railway interest. We...More
Positives, staff were terrific, enthusiastic and friendly. Steam locamotive was terrific.
Negatives, walk from Wymondham town to Abbey station needs a safe path for young children, too much traffic on this narrow lane. Perhaps a signposted route through parks and / or churchyard would help....More
We went from Dereham to Wymondham Abbey. A lot of hard work has been put in by the volunteers, with much more work to do. Vandals have even caused them problems with stock damaged that they have to work on. A pleasant journey with info...More
This is an enterprising heritage railway that is seeking to extend its line further north from Dereham. We travelled to Wymondham by a vintage diesel multiple unit dating from 1957, the sort of vehicle on which I travelled fifty years ago. The commentary by the...More
