The Mid-Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust was established in 1995 with the aim of buying and restoring the then-disused line between the Norfolk market towns of Dereham and Wymondham. At present the line extends between those towns, a distance of 11.5 miles; and the Trust owns a further 6 miles of disused railway to County School Station near North Elmham . The track bed is mostly intact from there to Fakenham, although not yet in the Trust's ownership.
Present projects include the provision of facilities for steam haulage, the restoration of Dereham Station, and the extension of the operational section of railway towards County School. Almost all the work, including maintaining the track and locomotives and running the trains, is carried out by volunteers.
Trains run on most weekends, and also on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the summer. There are special events throughout the year.
