Vintage vehicles of all shapes and sizes drew thousands of people to the North Norfolk Railway at the weekend.
The heritage 'Poppy Line' service hosted a vintage transport festival over the weekend which featured more than cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles that gathered at stations along the line, with the largest display at Holt.
Andrew Munden, the railway's general manager, said: "Visitors and exhibitors enjoyed beautiful weather and many seemed reluctant to leave at the end of the day.
"The railway operated an intensive train service all weekend and on Sunday the unique set of varnished teak articulated coaches was in traffic along with the vintage train that includes vehicles dating from 1884."
The railway is planning to host another vintage travel event featuring rolling stock from the Victorian and Edwardian eras from July 11 to 14, visit www.nnrailway.co.uk/special-events to find out more.
