The Mid Norfolk Railway has announced that they will be delaying their reopening until the 3rd of July.
This decision comes after the latest announcement by the Government regarding Coronavirus.
The railway will now be completing additional precautions in line with requirements before reopening on the 3rd July 2021.
The service will be steam hauled using the newly refurbished maroon coaching stock.
Tickets will be available via the Mid Norfolk Railway, with a full reopening announced in due course and are all subject to the Government announcements.
Explaining the delay Charlie Robinson, the Chairman of the Mid Norfolk Railway Preservation Trust said: “The Trust Council has sadly decided that the railway must postpone our reopening until 3 July. This was not a decision we have made lightly and we understand it is disappointing for our passenger and indeed our members and working volunteers and staff who have worked so hard to reopen.
“The Trust Council however recognises that we want to be able to put on a service that meets the expectations of our passengers and is also safe for them and our own staff. All Heritage railways are different and at this current time we will find it extremely difficult to deliver the level of service that we would want to provide to our customers due to the nature of our stations and our rolling stock.”
