NORTH NORFOLK RAILWAY VOLUNTEERS DAY

The NNR Open Day was blessed with good weather and attracted considerable crowds, including many local people. The tours of the engine and carriage sheds at Weybourne proved very popular and over twenty visitors tried their hand at driving a steam engine in the railway's 'Drive for a Fiver' promotion.

The railway also recruited a number of new volunteers, including a lady diesel driver, but can always use more. If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer please call (01263-820800) or drop into Sheringham station for more information. No railway related skills are required as full training is given. The railway especially welcomes ladies to train as guards, drivers and signalmen to join the existing female volunteers. (Personally, I had a great time on the footplate - many thanks to you, Melanie)

NORTH NORFOLK MODEL GROUP EXHIBITION


The North Norfolk Model Group held an exhibition of their models in th St John Ambulance Hall over the Easter Weekend. There were a large varity of models on display ranging from paper aeroplanes to railways, all expertly modelled.

The military display were very detailed and lifelike, it was fascinating to see and they must all have taken hours of painstaking work, not to mention eye-straining!

Tucked away in the corner, I found a model railway being closely guarded by it's creator and watched wide-eyed by a small boy. The gentleman obligingly moved his trains around the tracks, through the tunnels, stopping at the stations. The detail of the display and the town in the middle were truly beautiful. Many. many hours of labour.

Other models on display included cars, airoplanes, boats, ships, military personnel, lorries, tanks and many others.

All proceeds raised on the day were in aid of the St John Ambulance.

Congratulations to all of you whose crafts were on display, it was very enjoyable.
