Mid-Norfolk Railway gala showcases new sidings

THE Mid-Norfolk Railway’s April 5-7 diesel gala started in glorious sunshine, but the number of passengers was low. 

Trains ran between Dereham and Wyndham only, but a problem with the signalling installed in connection with the new storage sidings at Kimberley Park led to delays, amounting to about 40 minutes by the end of the day.
