Hunstanton and District Civic Society will hold an open evening at Hunstanton Heritage Centre on Thursday, May 19 dedicated to rail travel in general – and the Lynn to Hunstanton railway in particular.

The evening will begin with a reception at 6.30pm when visitors will have the opportunity to view the Railway Room and new exhibits on loan – a train driver’s seat and a pair of first class seats from one of the Class 365 trains that plied the line between Lynn and King’s Cross between 1996 and 2021, often used by Her Majesty the Queen on her visits to and from Norfolk.

Local resident Howard Johnston, well known as a major contributor and editor of railway magazines, will be giving a short talk on progress of the initiative to reinstate the Lynn to Hunstanton railway, bringing people up to date on the current status of the project.
