New team on Track at Bure Valley Railway

The Bure Valley Railway has recruited a new team member to raise the awareness of the “Broadland Steam and Diesel” experience at Aylsham.

Annette Bowler is the new Marketing Officer leading the drive to raise the profile to local, national, consumer and the trade market. She has acquired many years of experience in the Tourism industry including her work with Norfolk Tourism and her present role of Norfolk National Gardens Scheme press officer.

Annette said “I am delighted to have this exciting opportunity of marketing the Bure Valley Railway. New events and themes are being planned for the fifteen inch narrow gauge line to help raise its awareness. Few people know that the railway is supported by the ‘The Friends’ a volunteer organisation who are very hands on in helping, although this is rather greasy hands on most occasions”.

The Bure Valley Railway Norfolk’s longest fifteen inch gauge line runs between the ancient market town of Aylsham and Wroxham, the ‘Capital of the Norfolk Broads’ with country stations serving the villages of Brampton, Buxton and Coltishall. The eighteen mile round trip runs through the picturesque Bure valley countryside following the meandering river through meadowland and ancient pasture stopping occasionally at small country villages.

The Aylsham station hosts a souvenir shop with steam memorabilia to purchase that special gift. A visit to the Whistlestop restaurant will provide a variety of light snacks or full lunches, with small portions for children
