The Mid Norfolk Railway at Dereham has posted photos from recent vandalism, which has left substantial damage and repairs to fund.
Last weekend, between Friday 1st and Monday 4th of May 2020, damage was caused to many items of the railway’s rolling stock, including the recently restored British Railways Coach (with the restoration costing over £45,000) and a Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU).
This is very disheartening news for the line, especially with the financial impacts caused by COVID-19.
Anyone with information on the vandalism at the Mid Norfolk Railway, such as CCTV footage from the surrounding area, is urged to contact PC Sophie Webster at Dereham Police Station on 101, quoting crime reference number 36/29074/20 or call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555111.
The Mid-Norfolk Railway needs your support to increase their chances of surviving the effects of COVID-19, and sadly now the repair costs to these much-needed vehicles, leading to the line setting up the Coronavirus Closure Fund.
