My Railway Experiences

Introduction

I think people who search for articles and pictures of railway experiences are usually keen to see them all and not miss any. To help them I have written this short post to bring all my articles together so they can be easily found.

I have already written several posts about my railway experiences and there will likely be more in the future (see this list). So I expect to amend this article on each occasion I have something new to write about.

From my visit to The National Railway Museum (NRM) in York I have chosen the replica of Stephenson’s Rocket for my featured image in this post.

A North Norfolk Railway Journey

The North Norfolk Railway Poppy Line

The North Norfolk Railway (NNR), known as The Poppy Line, runs from Holt to Sheringham via Kelling Heath Halt (for Kelling Heath Park) and Weybourne. A total distance of 5¼ miles. It runs along the eastern section of the North Norfolk coast but stays inland from Holt to Weybourne at the western end. After Weybourne it runs nearer the coast on its way east to Sheringham. See a map of the line here. This has been made available by www.strollingguides.co.uk. The line is also highlighted here on a Google map.

My wife, our dog Leo and I road the rails there and back from Holt on 10th April 2014.
