The railway's annual Vintage Transport Festival and Bus Weekend has become one of the "must attend" events for owners of classic cars, trucks and motorcycles. There is so much to see and do with everything from marine engines and bicycles to Rolls Royces and tractors on show.
As well as private entries many local clubs attend.
Vintage buses will be giving free rides around the local area and to and from all NNR stations.
Last year we have over 400 exhibits attending, including cars, bikes, buses and static engines!
There will also be a classic car display at Holt on Sunday.
The majority of vehicles will be at Holt station on Sunday, however exhibits are spread across the railway. Although buses will be running on both Saturday and Sunday, there will be no other exhibits at the Railway on the Saturday.
Contrary to as previously published, Normal fares will be charged on both days with normal discounts on offer.
