NEW MARCH 2016. On Saturday 16 July 1960 members of the Norfolk Railway Society observed the workings of main-line trains throughout the Great Eastern area. They published their results in a card-covered typescript booklet, long out of print. The NRS has given us permission to offer this file of it so the information it contains may be made widely available once more.

In 1960 just under a third of the trains were still steam-hauled (classes noted including the Britannias, B1, B12, K1, K3, L1, 4MT and even a solitary J39). Most of the rest were entrusted to Brush diesels in the D55xx and D56xx series. Also represented were Sulzers, English Electric 2000hp, North British 1000hp and BTH Paxmans.

The observations were made at Norwich Thorpe, Yarmouth Vauxhall, Lowestoft Central, Ipswich, Bethnal Green, Ely North Junction, March and Cambridge. Tables were compiled to show detailed timekeeping in both directions between Norwich and Liverpool Street via Ipswich; between Lowestoft and Liverpool Street via the East Suffolk line; and between Yarmouth Vauxhall and March. 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.
