A weekend of steam engines, live music and entertainment is coming to the north Norfolk coast.

The North Norfolk Railway is getting ready to host Make Tracks to the Sixties, an event that "recalls the atmosphere of the transformative decade" with steam and diesel trains working side-by-side.

Held across the weekend of July 22 and July 23, the event will feature live music from the era and displays of some of the most distinctive road vehicles of the time.

One of the UK's premier Beatles tribute bands, The Vox Beatles, will be playing the Fab Four's hits, and there will be other live acts to enjoy. 

A half-hourly train service will operate between Sheringham and Holt allowing passengers to hop on and off all day to travel behind several different locomotives and to see the activities at Weybourne Station

A small selection of classic cars that were typical of the era will be on display in Weybourne along with some 1960s caravans.

A selection of scooters and motorbikes will also join the display on Sunday.

There will also be an opportunity for visitors to have a go at traditional sideshows that were a feature of fetes and fairgrounds during the decade.

The railway's two steam engines, constructed in 1957 and 1959 respectively, will be in action across the weekend.

Graham Hukins, commercial manager, said: "We're looking forward to transporting visitors back in time to the era of flower power and pop music, while also providing some on-track nostalgia with the locomotives and carriages.

"We urge visitors to take a break from working Eight Days a Week, grab their Ticket to Ride and become a Day Tripper as we steam back to the sixties."
