By far the biggest live event in the North Norfolk Railway Calendar. Step back in time to the days of the blitz, rationing and utility clothing.

Step back in time at our annual 1940s weekend, our most popular event in the Railway calendar!

Over the years this event has attracted more and more visitors and more and more exhibitors. It is widely felt to be one of the best events of its type in the country. People who attended last year were booking accommodation before they left as they enjoyed it so much!

Come in uniform or 1940s civilian dress to add to the atmosphere. Don't forget your gas mask and ration books!
