A real touch of nostalgia came to Dereham and its surrounding villages thanks to a coach and bus day organised by the Mid Norfolk Railway.
Dozens of buses from throughout the decades lined up at the Dereham station and took passengers back in time as well as on journeys around the countryside.
Showcasing transport from the 1930s through to the 1990s the beautifully restored vehicles were invited back on the roads for a day.

The railway event provided 1950s heritage diesel railcars and diesel loco hauled trains to take passengers on the line between Wymondham, Dereham and Hoe.
