NEW AUGUST 2018.  After a year's gap, this is the final traffic census carried out by members of the Norfolk Railway Society in the late 1950s and early 1960s, all of which are available in the Files Emporium. (There was to be just one more, in 1981, whose records are available as file TO048.) On Saturday 21 July 1962, members of the Norfolk Railway Society observed the workings of trains throughout the area. Observers were stationed at Norwich Thorpe, Ely North Junction, March, Yarmouth Vauxhall, Lowestoft, Ipswich and Liverpool Street. They published their fascinating results in a card-covered typescript booklet, long out of print. We offer this file of it so the information it contains may be made widely available once more.

Lowestoft Central was where all trains from Yarmouth South Town to London now reversed. Steam locomotives had all but disappeared: apart from a very few seen at Liverpool Street, the only one spotted was at Ely where black five 45052 was working between Birmingham and Clacton.

Tables were compiled to show detailed timekeeping of every train in both directions between Norwich and Liverpool Street via Ipswich; between Beccles and Liverpool Street via the East Suffolk line; and between Yarmouth Vauxhall and March for the Midlands and the North. The overall performance at the London terminus was also tabulated.

The file is word-searchable and is provided with bookmarks to take you to each of the main parts of the report. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
