and ticket office.

The Bure Valley Railway operates a nine-mile narrow gauge line between Aylsham and Wroxham, along a stretch of trackbed left disused since British Railways axed it in 1982.

It carries more than 100,000 passengers a year, and needs an army of active volunteers to help the handful of paid staff.

On Sunday, the line is staging an open day to give a behind the scenes look to anyone interested in joining the team, who range from drivers or guards on a train, ticket sellers, caf� and shop assistants, clerical support, and helping man publicity stands.
