Trains are running as normal through North Norfolk after a signalling fault was fixed by engineers.
Due to a fault with the signalling system between North Walsham and Sheringham, all lines between the towns were blocked earlier this evening.
Trains travelling north from Norwich were forced to terminate at North Walsham.
The problem started after 5pm, and led to initial train cancellations.
But when Network Rail engineers investigated it became clear that the problem could not be fixed quickly and passengers were advised to use replacement buses between North Walsham and Sheringham.
