Class 33025


Heritage Railways

class 33025 with the Cromer Dido train from Norwich to Sheringham at Cromer

Class 33025 with the "Cromer Dido" train from Norwich to Sheringham at Cromer station in 2006.

The train above was the "Cromer Dido" on Sunday the 30th April. This train had started at Norwich and had come into Cromer station. This first part to Cromer had this class 33 in charge with a LNER B1 steam locomotive in the rear.

The next part of the trip was after after waiting for the normal "ONE" service train from Sheringham to use the other patform at Cromer and head for Norwich. Then the "Cromer Dito" could head for Sheringham with the LNER B1 steam locomtive in charge and the class 33025 in the rear.

"Cromer" railway station now has just two platforms with all trains between Norwich and Sheringham both ways, having to reverse in and out of this station. Only one platform is normaly used and two passenger trains (one Steam) in station at one time is very rare.

Two trains in Cromer station in 2006.   

Two trains in Cromer station in 2006.

Class 33s were not seen at Cromer, so this and steam, was a rare event here

"Bittern Line"


Todays Cromer railway station is now part of the Bittern Line. The Bittern Line is a Community Railway Partnership that supports and publicises the railway from Sheringham to Cromer and to Norwich. This Partnership was formed by Norfolk County Council and the then local railway company back in 1997. The line has got busier and trains now run every hour at peak times and can be very full on Saturdays when the NNR has a big day and holiday makers are going to the seaside at Sheringham and Cromer. Passengers also go shopping at Norwich and to the football. The Community Railway Partnership has not only kept the line open but has got more passengers and trains running.
