Last Day of Rail Replacement

Today (hopefully!) was the last day of rail replacement activities at Great Yarmouth station and I looked in to see what had been achieved on the railway in addition to view the coaches provided for alternative transport for the Great Yarmouth to Norwich line.

Simonds Volvo B12Bs 98TNO and 224ENG on standby this morning
As stated in press reports, the line on platform 1 was to be removed, as part of the re-signalling scheme, but what wasn't mentioned was the tearing up of the siding next to platform 4. Both had taken place during the week's shut down.

The third of the Simonds quartet was VanHool bodied Volvo B10M XIL4072
On the rail replacement front all four coaches at the station late this morning were supplied by Diss operator Simonds. They were VanHool bodied Volvos 8333UR, 98TNO, 224ENG and XIL4072
