The North Norfolk Railway
The North Norfolk Railway
  • Description

The North Norfolk Railway, popularly known as the ‘Poppy Line’, is a preserved railway line running steam (and sometimes vintage diesel) locomotives on a 10.5 mile round trip from the beautiful little coastal town of Sheringham to Holt, in Norfolk.Visitors to the railway enjoy a journey through some of the county’s most varied scenery, from seascapes to wooded valleys.

Run largely by volunteers the line owns four historic steam locomotives, a Class 31 diesel, and a number of important heritage carriages and wagons. TheWilliam Marriott Museum at Holt Station contains artefacts and exhibits devoted to the railway, while historic little stations en route help to evoke the glorious days of steam on a country railway line.

Martin Bowman’s photographs capture this sense of nostalgia perfectly, while also taking some magnificent pictures of the locomotives and rolling stock. All this adds up to a book that is perfect both for visitors to Norfolk and for the steam enthusiast.

Martin W. Bowman has established an international reputation for his superb aerial photography. His published books also include a number on the landscape of East Anglia. He is also a widely respected military historian who has written over seventy books on aviation and related subjects.

Martin lives in Norwich, Norfolk, England and is active in historical research concerning East Anglia and the many RAF and USAAF squadrons that were based there during theWar. He also has a passion for flying in military aircraft and driving British Racing Green sports cars.
