Mixed for­tunes at Sheringham and Ched­dle­ton

Steam Railway (UK) - - Steam News -

Both the North Nor­folk and Chur­net Val­ley Rail­ways ex­pe­ri­enced a poor sum­mer in 2016 - but their fig­ures were bol­stered at other times of the year. At Sheringham, Mar­ket­ing and PR Man­ager Trevor Eady said that the line “did not have a great July or Au­gust”, but: “The ‘shoul­ders’ of the sea­son were re­ally good, par­tic­u­larly Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, re­sult­ing in a fi­nal fig­ure of 165,848 - just 60 fewer than the record in 2015.” In con­trast, CVR Oper­at­ing Man­ager Greg Wil­son said that the first six months of the year saw “a very good in­crease, not in num­bers but jour­neys made, which were 8,000 up - but July and Au­gust were poor.” How­ever, he added: “The ‘Santa Spe­cials’ were bet­ter, with pas­sen­ger num­bers up as well as rev­enue, driven by a £1 fare in­crease.”
