End of an era: the last train booked to call at Berney Arms for six months approaches Reedham Junction under the control of a semaphore signal on 19 October 2018. No 156419 formed the 15.17 Great Yarmouth – Norwich service.

PROGRESS WITH resignalling of the Wherry lines from Norwich to Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft has been reported by Network Rail following a nine-day suspension of services in late October. NR says 26 new signals were installed, along with associated signalling equipment and cables. Engineers also renewed 1,000 metres of track and crossings at Reedham and removed 300 metres of a disused rail siding. The junction at Reedham is being remodelled, but the ongoing work means services between Reedham and Great Yarmouth via Berney Arms are suspended until the resignalling work is completed in April 2019.
