NEW MAY 2018. Over the four days of Easter 1986, Norwich Thorpe station was closed to all trains while the track and signalling were replaced. Prospective travellers still had to purchase their tickets there before catching a special bus to Trowse station for their train.

Trowse had been closed to passengers since 1939, but it was now briefly reopened to serve as the station for Norwich. Trains from London went on to Yarmouth in order to keep the platforms clear. This is a 36-page booklet listing the services during that period.  It includes timetables for London; for Ely, Peterborough, Leicester and Birmingham; for Yarmouth and Lowestoft; and for Cromer and Sheringham - the last two via the specially relaid Wensum Curve.  There are separate timetables for each day.  On Easter Monday, during the afternoon trains were scheduled to access Norwich Thorpe once more (and the work finished on time, so that did indeed happen as planned).

This timetable also appears on TRO.CD which includes several colour photographs of those trains at Trowse as well.  The CD also covers the re-modelling at Norwich Thorpe during 1985 to 1987 and the replacement of the Trowse swing bridge, ready for the coming of the electric services.  It does this by a combination of many coloured slides taken at the time plus detailed contemporary reports of what was happening.
