|STEAM IN MINIATURE|
The Bure Valley Railway continues to celebrate its 25th anniversary year with an event on 26th and 27th September 2015 which celebrates the heritage of steam in a small scale. Alongside our home fleet of 15” engines purpose built for line, we will have two visiting engines: “Northern Rock” from Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway. Northern Rock has previously visited the railway, the last time being in 2011. This visit emphasises the strong relationship between the two railways. Also visiting will be Sandy River No. 24 from the Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway. This locomotive was previously a BVR loco until her sale in June 1997. This will be a chance to see her back at work in Norfolk.
There will be a special intensive timetable in operation throughout the weekend to allow visitors the opportunity to see as many different locomotives as possible hard at work over the nine miles between Aylsham and Wroxham.
In addition, we will have a selection of models in different scales down to “N” gauge.
Andrew Barnes, Director, says “this event will give railway enthusiasts and families alike a chance to see a collection steam engines on display and in operation in various gauges”.
Train fares allow unlimited travel on the day of issue. Adults £12.50, Children £6.50 and Under 5’s Free. No prior booking required.

Welcome to the Bittern Line, a Community Railway Partnership which supports and publicises the railway from Norwich to Cromer and Sheringham. The railway forms part of the National Rail system. The Partnership was formed by Norfolk County Council and Anglia Railways in 1997, additional funding partners have joined and funds raised are used to promote the railway and the surrounding area to develop economic and environmental benefits for residents, visitors and tourists. We are supported by The Department for Transport

The line is some 30 miles long, connecting the magnificent city of Norwich with the north Norfolk coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham, via the Norfolk Broads at Salhouse, Hoveton and Wroxham. Its name recognises a special, local bird, which has a distinctive booming call. A regular, almost hourly service operates along the route (less frequent on winter
Sundays) which has been described as "One of the 50 most scenic lines in the world
