A steam locomotive is scheduled to be in operation on the afternoon tea days, though due to operational and maintenance reasons this may be replaced by diesel at short notice.

Tickets also include all-day travel on the Mid-Norfolk Railway. 

Also running this summer is the Breckland Fryer Fish and Chip Train, with tickets still available for August 13 at 7pm for £26pp and it includes a meal and tea and coffee.
