Busy Weekend

We have had a really good weekend on the 'publicity' front as on Friday we were invited to take part in Radio Norfolk's Dave & Becky Show as a follow up to their visit to the ALR last May during their Sunday morning 'Treasure Quest' programme. We were made to feel very welcome by all the Radio Norfolk people and had plenty of time to talk about the railway, which we thoroughly enjoyed and which we hope will encourage some new visitors to the railway this year.


Then on Saturday we took our publicity stand to the Mid Norfolk Railway's Model Railway Exhibition at East Dereham. We shared duties during the day with our friends from the Broadland Model Railway Club who displayed their fascinating 'Corru' 009 scale layout. We were kept very busy during the day chatting to lots of people about our railway, which again we hope will generate some new visitors this year. Quite a lot of interest was shown in our Birthday Party and Driver Experience sessions.

Our calendar is already starting to fill up as we have visits arranged with the Norwich & District Model Engineers and the Great Eastern Railway Society whose members will be visiting the ALR on seperate evenings in May.
