Scenes from Norton Light Railway weekend. Pictures: Kevin Elfleet.

It was all aboard the Norton Light Railway for a charity weekend.

The gates were opened to the Snettisham venue for fundraising train rides and activities during the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday for the event organised by Hunstanton and District Rotary Club.

Visitors to Hall Farm, Old Church Road, helped to raise money for Home Start in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled,  Coastal Stroke Group based in Hunstanton and a Rotary-supported eye charity.

Visitors enjoyed rides on the  1km track through tunnels and over a viaduct as well as  refreshments, games and stalls.

The privately-owned railway is open three times a year and the final chance to go along will be next weekend on August 13 and 14 when members of King’s Lynn and District Round Table 54 host a fundraising family fun day for charity.

The privately-owned venue will be open from 1pm to 5pm  and there will be a bouncy castle, football shoot-out, Punch and Judy show, plate-smashing, jousting and more.

Four steam engines operate on the 1km-long track which includes viaducts and a tunnel.

The railway was built during the late 1980s and the first open day for charity was held in 1988.
