Lou Shorten Tribute Weekend – Norfolk (MG Magnette Register)

Sat 7th – Sun Oct 8th – Organised by the MG Magnette Register

Saturday: Our traditional “season closer” starting with John Shorten’s ‘Open House’ at Lenwade (NR9 5SD), the usual natter and a sandwich lunch. During the afternoon our cars will be judged for various awards and we shall hold our AGM.

Sunday: The East Anglia Transport Museum NR33 8BL Arrival time between 11.00am and 12.00noon. Entry charge £9 (£8 concession) per person. The museum closes at 4.00 pm allowing plenty of time for your journey home. This will be the first time the Register has visited the museum which looks fascinating. The basic theme is mechanical transport since the industrial revolution. The steam era is represented by a 2’ gauge railway running around the perimeter of the site. Rails continued into the era of the tram cars which were electric powered. Continuing with electric power was the ‘silent service’ – trolley buses which no longer used rail and so were free to avoid traffic while following a fixed route and receiving power from overhead wires. Also on display are buses with their own supply of power in the form of diesel engines – the ultimate transport system only requiring roads. All rides on the above are free. Also to be seen are lorries, cars, buses, vans, bicycles, steam rollers and a typical street of yesteryear. If you get hungry wandering around the site, café style light lunches, sandwiches, pasties, drinks and ice-cream are available so you will not go hungry!
