hi all ,
"A key proposal in a study into improving the rail network has suggested the reintroduction of a direct hourly service between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft."

The missing link on the curve is not built over so not too difficult to reinstate and there would be little point in moving the existing station as that would stop anyone coming from the south on a Norwich bound train alighting it "just"needs a new station to the east and these days they can be a very simple construction. The cost is in the planning, assessments and enquirers & of course profit for all of those involved

I guess the real problem would be finding more rolling stock to run the service.  The Norwich to Yarmouth service is currently being run with leased loco's and Mk111 coaches.

I think it would be a great idea, it would give people wanting to visit Yarmouth for the day another option. Moor at Oulton and get the train in, I can see it being well used.

" I can see it being well used. "

You may be right TT.
I do not venture to either Yarmouth or Lowestoft these days so not a scene that I am up to date with.
However I often use the hourly train between Cromer and Sheringham and am amazed at how busy that gets (The nearest coastal example that I can think of which also links with Norwich). Given that they are smaller towns one would expect the GT Yarmouth to Lowestoft service to be even busier.
I am all for enlarging the rail network wherever it could be justified.

I also very much like the 1hour 46 min Norwich to Kings Cross via Cambridge idea.
As well as the 15mins saved on the present Nch - Lon route it would mean a good deal shorter tube journey for me when I have to go there for business Smile .
It is a shame that I will probably have been retired a decade or two before it happens!

Kings Lynn to Hunstanton next please..... That would do the latter the world of good. Although all those rows of slightly shabby but sizeable Victorian terraces would probably soon become London commuter homes.

Interesting reading that is thought provoking in this
election year.
GPs, hospitals, police, schools our roads and rivers all
under resourced.
I wonder if any "Leader" would have the guts to say I
will fix what we have by cancelling HS2. I doubt it, too
much of a lemming mentality.

Whilst this thread raises some thorny issues, it would perhaps be more in keeping with Richard's desires for this site if national politics were to be avoided if at all possible please.

Thank you in advance.

John
