Whitwell and Reepham Railway Preservation Society was formed in 2008. We are a not for profit charity. We opened to the public in February 2009, fifty years to the day after the line was closed to passengers.
The Railway is manned by Volunteers and Staff. All profit goes back into the Charity; none of the Trustees are paid from the Society’s funds.
We are dedicated to giving our visitors a taste of how the Midland and Great Northern Railway ran this line, as well as running a variety of Events, historical and more lighthearted, to fund the project.
So Come and Visit us at Norfolk’s Newest Heritage Railway
“The Sidings” café and bar, the station museum and shop are open throughout the week. Pop along for a cuppa and cake, or a pint and a meal. A warm welcome is guaranteed. We have a sunny, enclosed rear garden, perfect for relaxing. Railway enthusiasts and families alike will want to make the most of their weekend visit with a train ride along our track.
