- The abbreviation M&GN was interpreted by many as meaning the Muddle & Get Nowhere Railway.
- Massingham was the only station between South Lynn and Fakenham to have a footbridge.
- There were 59 passenger stations, including 3 termini, with access to 2 others. A further 9 stations were owned jointly with the GER on the Norfolk & Suffolk Joint Railway.
- It was an extremely safe system - not a single passenger was killed on the M&GN.
