Mid Norfolk Railway

The Mid-Norfolk Railway is owned and operated by the volunteers of the Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust. From our base in Dereham, Norfolk, we operate Heritage Rail services along the 11 mile line to the market town of Wymondham, just outside Norwich. We are also working to extend services north from Dereham towards North Elmham and County School.

The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust was set up in 1995 to buy the line from Wymondham to Dereham. The station at Dereham was cleaned up, and open days held. After building a platform at Rash’s Green near Dereham, passenger trains were run between there and Yaxham in 1995. This was a huge success and provided tangible evidence of the Trust’s achievements and its ability to operate the line.

The work of maintaining and reinstating track, stations, engines and carriages continues and we are always seeking new volunteers to help with this work.
