Visitors to the Mid Suffolk Light Railway will be able to go back to its wartime heyday over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Middy in the War Years is a popular event at the museum at Brockford – and this year will feature flypasts by World War II aircraft on both Sunday and Monday afternoons.
On Sunday a Spitfire from the Battle of Britain flight will fly over the event, while on Monday a Dakota will be doing the honours.
The event will also see the arrival of guest locomotive Sirapite, a “traction engine on rails,” which is visiting from the Longshop Museum at Leiston.
The Middy served two US air bases during the war – and was never busier than in the early 1940s when it was serving both the Americans and local farmers and their families.
