About North Norfolk Railway - Poppy Line

Once you are on board the steam trains an on your 10 mile round trip, you can hop off at any of the four stations along the route and explore. Once you have seen everything, jut hop back on board to continue to the next stop.

Kelling Heath Park is our smallest station serving the Nature Trail and Kelling Caravan Park. Owing to the steep gradient steam trains do not stop here on the journey to Holt but will stop if a clear signal is given to the driver on the return trip from Holt to Sheringham.

Holt is our western terminus and is just about 1 mile from the centre of this lovely Georgian Town. The 'Holt Flyer', a London Routemaster Bus service meets most steam trains in the summer. Whilst on the station be sure to drop in and see 'Broad Sidlinch' a 300 square foot model railway, which was featured in the Railway Modeller magazine. This is usually open at weekends and during the red timetable, subject to the availability of volunteers. There is also a miniature railway operated by the North Norfolk Model Engineering Club, which is open on selected dates.

The best way to travel is to purchase a rover ticket which entitles you to travel for the whole day. Details of the current fares can be found on our fares page.

Dogs and cycles are welcome on our trains although there is a small additional charge.

Buffet facilities are available on some trains. A wide range of hot and cold drinks are available in addition to sandwiches, light snacks, cakes and confectionary. Sip your freshly made tea as you watch the countryside roll by.

Disabled Access

We have two refurbished coaches in service for passengers confined to a wheelchair.

One is panelled in European Ash, has provision for up to five standard sized wheelchairs and has standard seating for four accompanying friends. The picture windows give a fine view of the surrounding countryside and sea. It also has uplighting should your travel take place after dark.

The second coach has the same facilities but with a smaller capacity, which runs on our second train. This can accommodate up to four wheelchairs and has the same picture windows.

Although the majority of our services include one of the coaches mentioned above, the formation of the service trains do change and should you be travelling with a group confined to wheelchairs, we would recommend a phone call to 01263 820800 before the day of travel. We can then try to arrange for the necessary accommodation to be available for you.

Although there are usually toilets on each of our trains, the width of the corridor does not permit the passage of a wheelchair.

For passengers with limited mobility we can accommodate wheelchairs in our brake van whilst the passenger travels with their friends in our standard coaches.

Guide dogs are welcome, free of charge, on the North Norfolk Railway.
