Full description from the producer:
Filmed over a number of years, this story looks back at the very beginnings of
the line as the MGNJR Society took over the 5-mile line from Sheringham to
Holt. We see rare archive film of the final days in British Railways’ ownership
including the very last freight train to depart from Sheringham and Anglia Television’s Bob Wellings at a derelict Weybourne Station in 1966, plus the last days at Melton Constable. Full of
nostalgia and up-to-date footage of steam operations over the heritage line
with all classes of locomotives. Dads Army recreation days are viewed at
Weybourne bringing some humour to the railway which is now one of the
most important attractions in Norfolk.
