Sheringham East signal box
Sheringham East signal box in 2015 at Sheringham station in its new place at the site of the old level crosing.
Sheringham East signal box was moved onto the platform at Sheringham station when the NNR first started after the level crossing was removed by BR.
The NNR has now returned the box to somewere near to its old place. They have also repainted it.
The gates are not like a normal level crossing, but stop people getting onto the line. Trains have only use the tracks across the road crossing on odd days a year.

It is hoped to run NNR steam trains to Cromer from Sheringham top and tailed with a diesel. This service will be somthing like the NYMR trains to Witby, Locomotives will need to be mainline certificated and run between the Greater Anglia services.

The North Norfolk Railway
The North Norfolk Railway runs between Sheringham and Holt which is about 10 miles for the return trip. Sheringham is the railways headquarters.
On the other side of the road to the Sheringham North Norfolk Railway station is Sheringham Mainline railway station
which is part of the Bittern Line from Norwich. The North Norfolk Railway own station is the old Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway station with the mainline station being just a short open platform.
The NNR now has a main connection and trains can now cross over the road between the two stations at Sheringham on certain days of the year.
This station Weybourne is a passing place and often two trains will be in the station. Weybourne has the NNR engine sheds and workshops here .
Kelling Heath Park is just a small Halt with trains only stopping by request on the return journey because of the gradient, here.
Holt station is not now were the old station was, as when this part of M&GN closed a road was built on part the old railway bed. Some of the site were the old station was, has also been built on.
The new NNR station at Holt has all new platforms but the signal box and the station buildings and other parts, have been saved from other M&GN stations or built in same way.
