Diss railway station
The main station building and ticket office is situated by the Up (London-bound) platform (at left).

Diss railway station is on the Great Eastern Main Line and located about 32 kilometres (20 miles) south of Norwich. The station was once situated between Burston and Mellis stations but a number of stations between Diss and Norwich have since been shut. Diss is presently operated and served by National Express East Anglia and has the rare distinction of being served exclusively by Intercity trains. A local railway - Bettsí railway - was built in Victorian times to take produce to the station and bring back manure from the many London horses. It has long since been shut down and no traces appear to have remained of it.

The Great Eastern Railway grew in a rather piecemeal fashion from a number of smaller companies, and it did not complete its London terminus at London Liverpool Street until 1874. Historically, its routes served East Anglia, the East Coast and Londonís north eastern suburbs, and this pattern is maintained today.
