Sheringham railway station platform has been officially reopened by Greater Anglia after a £1m refurbishment.
The enhancement scheme, which was delayed twice, involved the installation of a brand-new platform at the station that, at 80m, is double the length of the previous one.
The platform is also wider and means the station can fully accommodate the new state of the art trains which started to enter service on the Bittern Line earlier this month.
Jonathan Denby, Greater Anglia's head of corporate affairs, said: "We're delighted to be able to deliver this major station improvement.
"It provides a much better facility for customers and the wider community, and is already being used by our new trains."
