One unbranded ex Virgin Trains class 90 in Norwich station in 2005

"One" unbranded ex Virgin Trains class 90 in Norwich station in 2005

 

This ex Virgin Trains class 90 has no number and looks in a poor state in 2005. "One" had taken over the running of the Norwich London trains from Anglia trains who's colours are still on the mark 2s.

The locomotives used on the trains to London was a very poor mix of ex Virgin class 90s at this time, in 2005. A lot of time and work , has now been spent in the last few years trying to get these class 90s more reliable. (the photo above shows what a sort of state they were in then)

 

 

Norwich Stations

Norwich had three railway statons at one time. Today only one is left.

 

The two stations that have closed are "Norwich City" which closed in 1959 and was the terminus for the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway. "Norwich Victoria" was opened as passenger station in 1849 but later became a goods station closing in the 1970s.

 

"Norwich Station" is the only station left in Norwich (It used to be called "Norwich Thorpe Station"). It is a terminus station, at the end of the line from London's Liverpool Street Station via Ipswich.

 

After privatistion trains were run by Anglia Trains then One. The One name was changed to National Express East Anglia (NXEA).

In 2014 these trains are run by Abellio Greater Anglia who now runs the Greater Anglia franchise in 2014

Abellio Greater Anglia now also runs the  trains from Cambridge  to Norwich

There are also trains into Norwich on the line from Ely , from  Liverpool and Nottingham via Peterborough. These trains were run by Central Trains but today are now run by East Midland Trains.

 

To the north east of Norwich there is the line to Cromer and Sherringham now called The Bittern Line. Trains are now run by by Abellio Greater Anglia who now runs the Greater Anglia franchise in 2014 There are lines to the east to Great Yarmouth and Lowstoft. These trains are also run Abellio Greater Anglia in 2014

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is a webe site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes like this page, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
