Dereham’s Fiery Dragon - and other Railway Relics
The Railway Station, Station Road, Dereham, Norfolk, NR19 1DF
Talks, tours, steam train action and more... something for everyone, including crafty kids!
Watch our 'fiery dragon' as it arrives/departs on scheduled passenger services - and get a close look at the loco from the station platform. You might even get to see the fireman replenish it's tank from the water crane.
Discover the origin and development of the local railways at one of the illustrated short talks and by visiting our Museum Room, while a guided tour around the station's public areas will give you the low-down on the station itself and adjacent railway buildings.
And if you want a real insight into railway life of the past then come along to another of our short talks when a retired railwayman who has 'been there, done that - and has the T-shirt' will recount some reminiscences and anecdotes.
And for those 'crafty kids'? For children we offer very simple paper-based craft and/or decorating, with the proviso that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.
This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
