Our Forties event this year  was a spectacular success, with fly pasts on Saturday of a Lancaster bomber and on Sunday a Spitfire. The three platforms of our line were thronged with groups of men, women and children all resplendent in Forties outfits.  Members of the armed forces ,from both the US and the UK were to be seen everywhere.  The green spaces beside both Weybourne and Holt Stations were alive with groups of men under canvas and at one point, an enemy spy was discovered and promptly arrested.  The performing group Timescape gave lively concerts of favourite wartime songs at Holt and many visitors enjoyed nostalgic rides on the Gallopers.  At Sheringham, on  Saturday there was an Evening Get-Together of music, dance and entertainment.  A beer tent and hog roast on the platform meant that no one went short of food or drink.

For the more serious connoisseur of steam railways, the Marriot Museum at Holt was open.  It follows the history of the line from the early days until the present day.  Also of historic interest, was the chance to see the quad-art set running during the weekend.

To add to these delights, there were model railways to view at Weybourne and Holt, bookshops to browse in and of course, souvenir shops to linger in on all stations.

That’s what its all about!
