This week marks fifty years since the closure of the railway line, which directly linked Lowestoft and other stations in Suffolk with Great Yarmouth. 
To mark the occasion, the Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnership and the Lowestoft Central Project, are appealing for people to share their memories and any images of the railway, for a special online exhibition and permanent displays to be installed at Lowestoft station later this year.
Built in 1903, the Lowestoft to Yarmouth Railway ran from Great Yarmouth Beach Station and served stations including Hopton, Corton and Lowestoft North.
Any pictures of the line featuring passengers, rolling stock, signal boxes or stations would be appreciated – so If you have any images or memories you wish to share, please email them to: info@communityrailnorfolk.co.uk
