Somerleyton Station looking towards Haddiscoe
Somerleyton station is 18 miles from Norwich and is served by some of the trains operating between Norwich and Lowestoft and vice versa. Some trains on this service operate non-stop between Norwich and Oulton Broad North, hence the yellow lines along the platforms the help prevent people on the platforms getting too close to trains passing through. The platform on the left is for Norwich bound trains and passengers get to this by means of a level crossing at the far end of the platforms. The platform on the right is for Lowestoft bound trains and the station car park can just be made out to the right of this. Beyond the platforms the lines can be made out climbing towards the swing bridge. What is also noticeable is that the Lowestoft bound line has clean ballast and rails supported by concrete sleepers, while the Norwich bound line appears weed-infested and has rails supported by wooden sleepers.
