Heritage revived at North Elmham Festival

LKD229 beside County School Station, North Elmham
This Sunday afternoon and bank holiday Monday was the annual village festival in the former railway town of North Elmham.

A free village bus service, with vehicle kindly supplied by the Eastern Transport Collection Society, operated on both days from the County School Station (On a now defunct branch-line of the Mid Norfolk Railway) and the former village rail station at the opposite end of the village. Being asked to be conductor for the day, I managed a few photographs in the picturesque village - which dates back as far as the early 1000s. 

Seen to the right is preserved 1954 Eastern Counties Bristol Lodekka LKD229 OVF229 at the County School Station building. Unfortunately, North Elmham was not included on the lengths and lengths of destination blind - so something a bit nearby was chosen instead.
