Mid Norfolk Railway to host vintage day 

May 8 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Mid Norfolk Railway (MNR) has launched the details of its special Vintage Bus & Coach Day together with a Meccano Exhibition on Sunday 8th May 2022.  The exhibition will be located in the marquee at the station.  There will be around 30 vintage buses and coaches displayed in Dereham station car park with the opportunity to ride on various vintage buses around the town, and also out to Yaxham, Hardingham stations and County School. There is no charge to ride on the buses.  

James Oakley of Mid Norfolk Railway said: “This is going to be an exciting day out for all those who love buses, trains and vintage Meccano.  It will be a real trip down memory lane!  We are really looking forward to hosting this fun-packed day with The East Anglian Meccano Set and vintage bus and coach owners while being able to get our visitors out on the Mid Norfolk Railway once again!”

Christopher Kemp of The East Anglian Meccano Set said: “The Mid-Norfolk Railway will be welcoming The East Anglia Meccano Set (TEAMS) to the Vintage Bus Day on Sunday 8th May 2022.  TEAMS will be displaying a range of Meccano models including road vehicles, industrial machinery, aircraft, fairground rides and a working model railway. Some of these models are entirely freelance, others are inspired by the model plans issued with Meccano kits.”

The adult full price ticket allowing unlimited train travel on the day is £17 per person from Dereham to Wymondham Abbey return. Up to two children can travel for free with each full price paying adult.  The bus rides and the Meccano Exhibition are free.
