A train had to be diverted this morning to avoid sheep on the line.
The 0845 from Great Yarmouth to Norwich was due to call at Acle and Lingwood.
However, because of the animals on the track, the train was diverted via Berney Arms, Reedham, Cantley and Buckenham railway stations instead.
A tweet posted by Greater Anglia said: 'Great Yarmouth to Norwich will no longer call at Acle and Lingwood. This is due to sheep on the track. KB'
The scenic route crosses through The Broads and from the train you can see the wide open spaces of the Broads marshes, and you can spot the bird and plant life from the train windows.
The lines from Norwich to Brundall and on to Lowestoft are double track with the lines between Brundall and Great Yarmouth and Reedham and Great Yarmouth being single track.
The Berney Arms station is one of only two in the UK that cannot be accessed by road.
