NEW OCTOBER 2017.  The Northern and Eastern Railway was responsible for building the line through Bishops Stortford towards Cambridge.  As the first word in its name implies, its main motive was to construct a line to the north, through Lincoln to York. At the London end it met up with the ECR by a junction at Stratford, and from there exercised running powers to the terminus.

In practice the money became short somewhere around Newport.  Meanwhile some totally isolated railways had sprung up centred on Norwich.  The ECR's proposed main line was grinding to a halt by Ipswich.  The N&ER and the ECR now saw it to be in their joint interests to complete the line from Newport to Cambridge, then extend it through Ely to an end-on junction with the Norfolk Railway which ran from Norwich to Brandon.

In 1914 the Railway Magazine published a two-part article entitled 'The Northern and Eastern Railway and its Connections', written by H H Meik, and that is what this file provides. It describes the history of the whole operation.  The connections mentioned in the title were the railways it met in Norfolk.  There is a map of the line from London to Brandon, and another depicting the railways in Norfolk.  Gradient profiles are given all the way from London through Brandon to Norwich.  There is a timetable dated September 1845 listing the trains between London, Cambridge and Norwich and between Norwich and Yarmouth.
