With two bars serving up drinks with names ranging from Tiffin Gold and Atlantic Hop, to Granny Wouldn't Like it and Off Ya Rocker, the three-day event promised to provide something for all tastes, with a packed Sheringham station also treating festival-goers to a hot food and live music.

North Norfolk Railway managing director Hugh Harkett said: 'It's as full as I have seen it and, although I am no beer aficionado, I think people enjoy the choice on offer and the fantastic atmosphere of the railway.'
