Fancy an amazing ride through the countryside of North Norfolk on a steam train bedecked with Christmas lights. What a great trip for children and the adults to enjoy as Christmas approaches. The Poppy Line North Norfolk Heritage Railway is running this service for the festive season and it has been named The Norfolk Lights Express.
Decorated with multi-coloured lights, the steam trains will run between the 20th November and the 23rd December and the 27th to the 31st December. There will be illuminated festive scenes beside the line from Sheringham to Holt and the stations at Sheringham, Weybourne and Holt will also be spectacularly illuminated with displays of Christmas lights.
For full details and a view of what the train will look like visit the website of the North Norfolk Railway.
The departures from Sheringham will be between 1630 and 1930hrs. The journey lasts for over an hour and tickets cost £15.
This new service has been featured in the national press so it is anticipated that demand for tickets will be high. If you are interested I suggest you book asap online or ring the ticket office on 01263 820800.
The railway’s popular Santa Specials services will still be running throughout the day on the run-up to Christmas.
