Railway enthusiasts are being offered the chance to bid on a collection of rare photographic postcards which capture various railway stations from across Norfolk and Suffolk as they were in the glory days of steam.

Amongst the postcards going under the hammer is a snapshot of a busy Yarmouth Beach Railway Station in 1909, large crowds gathered on the platform at Attleborough Railway Station and a colourised image of Midland and Great Northern city Station in Norwich which closed in 1958.

Locomotive enthusiasts will also have the chance to snap up a postcard showing a goods engine under steam travelling between Drayton and Costessey.

The auction will take place on Wednesday, January 23, at 11am in James and Sons Auction House in Norwich Street, Fakenham.
