About our Associate
The Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway
Today the Poppy Line is one of Britain’s foremost heritage railways, carrying over 126,000 passengers a year.
The M&GN Joint Railway Society is the registered charity that supports the North Norfolk Railway, the Poppy Line operating company.
The Society owns four historic steam locomotives and a vintage diesel loco. It also owns the only surviving Gresley Quad-Art 4-coach set, an LNER pigeon van, a coach from the Wisbech Tramway, and other historic vehicles. Many of the Society’s artefacts, photographs, maps, tickets and other ephemera are on display in the William Marriott Museum at Holt Station.
There are some 2,000 Society members, many of whom work on the Poppy Line as volunteers: the line is volunteer-led, and over 90% of the jobs on the Railway are carried out by volunteers. There are only 30 full- and part-time staff.
