The NNR is a preserved railway which runs between the Norfolk towns of Sheringham and Holt. Leaving Sheringham Station aboard a train of Mk 1 coaches pulled by Standard 4 – 76084 we made our way through the Norfolk Countryside to Weybourne Staion and then onto Holt.

We remained on the train and went back to Weybourne in the hope of getting to see the collection of engines held here but the shed was not open to public and only a limited view was possible from the platform. Weybourne is the nicest station of the 3 on the line and as posted yesterday we also had the pleasure of seeing a nest of Barn Swallows fledge whilst waiting for our train back to Sheringham.

We then rejoined a diesel powered unit for the journey back to Sheringham.

A lovely ride through the Norfolk countryside, but disappointed that I was not able to get a good look at the engines they have in preservation.
