The North Norfolk Railway is back up and running, and chairman Steve Allen has updated all the fans of the railway on how its emergency appeal has gone.

Thanking all those who had helped he said: “As of Wednesday we had received approximately £82,000 in donations and share purchases. There is also a further £3,500 pledged taking the total over £85,000, and funds are still coming in, albeit slower now.

“Added to this is the £46,000 lottery grant and the significant and timely £160,000 from the [M&GN Joint Railway] Society for rolling stock purchases, this makes the total just over £300,000. These funds have ensured the railway’s survival during this difficult time.

“The appeal will remain open as there is still a long way to go before we’re back to normal.”
