New footbridge and Souvenir Shop at Sheringham
Sheringham station now has a new footbridge and a New Souvenir Shop, Conveniences & Tourist Information Centre, in a new building were the old WCs were. This photo was taken on the 5th of September 2016. There was temporary blue plastic netting in place as someone has said the spaces are to big, as it is classed a new build. Wire may be needed to make the holes smaller? There will also be a wheel chair foot crossing, which was still bing built.
Sheringham East signal box has been moved off the platform and back next to station road were it was in M&GN and BR days, as part of the work on Sheringham station.

About 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. The site of were the old M&GN 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.
