One class 156422 with a train to Norwich at Sheringham

One class 156422 with a train to Norwich at Sheringham main line station.

When a train comes in on a busy Saturday at the main Sheringham station, there is little room on the platform for the passengers waiting and those on the train to get off. The platform has just two seats and there are two bus type shelters in the small taxi area near the road. There is also a help phone.

The Bittern Line is a Community Railway Partnership that supports and publicises the railway from Sheringham to Cromer and 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. The Community Railway Partnership has not only kept the line open but got more passengers and trains running.
