The North Norfolk Railway is celebrating a new year’s bonus.
Last year the railway beat its records, carrying over 150,000 people for the first time in a single year. The final figure of 150,497 was 5 per cent up on 2010, which was itself 13 per cent up on 2009. The railway is based in Sheringham and runs along the spectacular Norfolk coast.
Says Colin Borg of NNR, ‘Coming on top of a 13 per cent increase in 2010, the record result is a tribute to our volunteers who operated an intensive programme of services and special events throughout the year. It emphasises the importance of the Poppy Line to the tourist economy of North Norfolk.’
The railway plans a special three day event in June commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Ealing comedy film, ‘The Titfield Thunderbolt.’
