A Visit to the Mid-Norfolk Railway; Saturday night and a short (ish) drive over to Dereham in West Norfolk for the Barn & Beach guests. We are visiting the Mid-Norfolk Railway who are staging a Halloween themed rail journey from Dereham Station to Wymondham station.

It looks quaint in the late Autumn sunshine the frontage of Dereham station and the home of the Mid-Norfolk Railway, inside the station we enjoyed some theatre as the volunteers had dressed the cafe/waiting room with subtle lighting and ghostly goings on!

A coffee and a cosy cafe eased the wait, it’s not too long until we are welcomed on board an old Inter-City diesel train bound for….well who knows?

Darkness fell, in the pitch black as the train approached a station there were some ghoulish characters waiting to welcome us all.

The train lights flickered and the children screeched with delight as a variety of characters rattled the windows and doors it was a SCREAM from start to finish.

It was our first trip to the Mid-Norfolk Railway but certainly wont be the last as it is such a well run and enjoyable experience and they have a list of events for all of the family to enjoy throughout the calendar year.

The next event is the Santa Lapland Express a totally different experience but I bet one not to be missed especially for those with young children.

Visit Norfolk, Spring, Summer Autumn & Winter with Barn & Beach there is so much to see and do you will have to keep coming back for more…

The Mid-Norfolk railway has a full listing of events on their website, I can highly recommend you try this train line on your next visit to our beautiful county.
