Nearly 115,000 passengers have travelled on the North Norfolk Railway since April in what bosses described as one of the railway's "busiest ever periods".
The heritage railway started operating again after lockdown restrictions eased on April 12 and has seen higher visitor numbers for late summer and autumn than in 2019.
Graham Hukins, commercial manager at North Norfolk Railway, said: “Being forced to remain closed through the Easter holidays was the worst possible start to the season.
"That was followed by three months where only limited operations were possible, so we are delighted that visitors have returned in force later in the year making the last three months one of our busiest ever periods.”
The railway continues to have a busy programme of events planned for the winter season.
The Norfolk Lights Express begins on November 15 and the Santa Special train will operate from November 27.
