The team behind Greater Anglia’s Bittern Line has announced that they’ll be adding another carriage to the route from Norwich to Sheringham.

The news was revealed at the Sheringham and Cromer Chamber of Trade’s joint meeting last night, where issues about the service were raised.

A representative of the line said: “We will be increasing the number of coaches in the service to three given the higher demand for people travelling between Norwich, Cromer and Sheringham.

“However people will have to walk down the train to leave the train at Sheringham, due to the doors opening in the centre of the carriage, and the platform not being long enough.”

It was confirmed that at present, services on the route would not be operating more than once every hour.

David Gooch, mayor of Sheringham, said: “What worries me is that very often trains are getting to Cromer and are finishing there if they are delayed, so as to make the time up. In those cases, we don’t get a service coming to Sheringham at all, and that’s unacceptable.”
