Sheringham Station

 

Sheringham railway station is the northern terminus of the Bittern Line.  It was opened by British Rail on 2 January 1967 replacing the original station in Sheringham opened by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway, which is located across the road, enabling the closure of the level crossing there. 

Sheringham railway station is the northern terminus of the Bittern Line.  It was opened by British Rail on 2 January 1967 replacing the original station in Sheringham opened by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway, which is located across the road, enabling the closure of the level crossing there. 


The original station has since become the terminus of the North Norfolk Railway heritage line. The main line station is situated on the southern edge of the town centre, but within walking distance of the beach. 

Between 2007 and 2010, work was undertaken to reinstate the original level crossing across the road to allow trains from Norwich to run onto the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) heritage line tracks.

Work began in January 2010 with the moving of the NNR headshunt to slew into line with the National Rail section. The link was reinstated in March 2010 when the first passenger train over the new crossing was steam locomotive ‘Oliver Cromwell’, hauling a train from London Liverpool Street.
