“Back to the M&GN”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

I had originally intended to join the train at Sherringham, but traffic delays resulted in a diversion to Holt. It had been a long time since I was last at the North Norfolk Railway the southern platform was the preferred platform, but new building on the north platform has resulted in this being the preferred platform. The loco was the N2 tank which I have had on several railways. As usual the disabled coach is not the most comfortable.

“A trip from Holt to Sheringham”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This was an absolute delight. The station was beautifully kept and had artifacts in keeping with the age of the station and the beautiful steam train.

You could purchase food and drink, although these were limited. Staff were very helpful and friendly. There was plenty of information and even a small secondhand book niche with an honesty box. The return journey took just over an hour and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

“Lovely Railway”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely journey from Holt to Sheringham which takes you through lovely countryside and in sight of the sea. The trains are mostly steam powered, carriages comfortable and all run by, obviously, dedicated staff. We enjoyed our time spent on the steam railway made even better by a beautiful late October day. Highly recommended.

“Great nostalgia”
Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

We joined the train at Holt, which has easy parking, and got off at Weybourne in order to walk along the cliffs to Sheringham. Weybourne is a beautifully restored country branch line station absolutely brimming with nostalgia of the way railways used to be. All the more so as on the day we were there, it was dull and damp so there was plenty of steam from the locomotives - very atmospheric. We caught the train back from Sheringham to Holt and wished the journey could have been longer. There are super views over the sea as you leave Sheringham. Holt station has a really excellent museum (free entrance if you have travelled on the railway) for anyone interested in knowing a bit more about the history of the line.
