Train crews and station staff at North Norfolk Railway were praised during a visit by the High Sheriff of Norfolk.
Managing director Hugh Harkett and general manager Andrew Munden gave Major General Sir William Cubitt and Lady Cubitt a conducted tour of the Railway’s range of workshops and engine sheds at Weybourne.
Meanwhile, at Holt station they were given a conducted tour of the Railway Cottage and the William Marriott Museum.
Sir William also met volunteers at the Railway’s stations at Sheringham, Weybourne and Holt, the signalmen at each station, and the loco crews.
He said “I was amazed that all the train crews and station staff were volunteers. And I was most impressed by the contribution of the North Norfolk Railway to the area in terms of tourism, employment, skills, volunteering, landscape and heritage - it’s a magnificent asset for Norfolk.”
