Last Sunday, Winkle’s Yard made a successful appearance at the Reepham and Whitwell Model Railway exhibition.
The Whitwell and Reepham Railway Preservation Society was formed in 2008 as a not for profit charity. It opened to the public in February 2009, fifty years to the day after the line was closed to passengers.
The Railway is manned by Volunteers and Staff and profit goes back into the Charity; none of the Trustees are paid from the Society’s funds.
Any visitors get a taste of how the Midland and Great Northern Railway ran this line, as well as running a variety of Events, historical and more lighthearted, to fund the project. The model railway exhibition is one of many events that take place during the year.
Our group also presented it’s WW1 layout ‘4000 yards’ complete with authentic war time sound effects.
Here are a few pics of Winkle’s Yard from the event:
Here are a few pictures of 4000 Yards. I couldn’t take too many as I was behind Winkle’s Yard all day.
