Todays main line station at Sheringham is on the other side of the road to the North Norfolk's Railways station. The mainline station is on the single track line from Cromer and Norwich. There is just a very short platform with a buffer stop at Sheringham.
This station was built when the station and the railway line to Holt that the North Norfolk Railway now uses was closed. This meant that the level crossing over the main road into the town could also be closed
Just a short platform for a two car DMU was built at the new Sheringham station. There is a very small car park with space for about two taxis. Being set back from the road many people could miss this station.
The North Norfolk Railway then took over the closed Midland and Great Northern Joint line station across the road. For many years the NNR tried to get the level crossing reinstated across the road. Plans for mainline trains to share the NNRs station came to nothing.
A normal level crossing with gates was ruled out, but a part time line across the road to give access to and from the NNR for main line trains on just a few days a year was at last passed.
The new Sheringham Crossing was re-opened on Thursday the 11th of March in 2010. Pete Waterman and hundreds of people saw 70013 a Britannia class locomotive named Oliver Cromwell cross over the road with a mainline steam trip. This was the the first passenger train over the road for forty six years

Bittern Line
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.
