Campaigners are set to reveal how their bid to reopen the railway line between King's Lynn and Hunstanton is progressing.
They will be giving a presentation to West Norfolk councillors on Tuesday, March 12.
No details of the 30-minute presentation have been made public.
So far more than 4,000 people have signed a petition since the campaign was launched in 2017.
