We remained on the train and went back to Weybourne in the hope of getting to see the collection of engines held here but the shed was not open to public and only a limited view was possible from the platform. Weybourne is the nicest station of the 3 on the line and as posted yesterday we also had the pleasure of seeing a nest of Barn Swallows fledge whilst waiting for our train back to Sheringham.
