The railway line from Gt. Yarmouth South Town to St. Olaves


File0238.jpg

Archive pictures of the railway line between Gt. Yarmouth Southtown station and St.Olaves.
All pictures courtesy of Mr J. Deen
I found your gallery of photos of the Yarmouth - Beccles railway very interesting, having travelled the line many times as a schoolboy. Apart from the photos of engines/trains on the line, the pictures of the station, signal box and other lineside features are particularly of interest.

Observations on the captions of two pictures:-

No.19 - this picture has appeared in a book covering the line from Saxmundham to Yarmouth. The picture was taken inside Belton signal box and not the waiting room and apparently features Billy Squires (confirmed by my mother-in-law)

No.31 - the bridge is definitely not on Stepshort. See the guard rails on the other photo of the Stepshort bridge, which has six vertical posts, as has the St. John's Road bridge. No.31 only has four. I think the bridge was that at the junction of Lord's Lane/Clay Lane, Bradwell,which is logical. All other bridges/ crossings apart from Burgh Road road bridge at Bradwell and Bradwell House crossing are shown.

Further to my earlier submission, I have a few more observations on the Belton - Yarmouth railway photo gallery:- 1. photo 5/41 - Raynham Hall was 61611 (2811 in LNER days as the caption states) 2. photo 10/41 - the caption is incorrect. Where is St.John's Road bridge in the photo and indeed the King's Head? The photo is taken from Belton signal box, looking towards St. Olaves with Belton Common on the left side of the line. The signal post is the down home signal at Belton station, with the repeater arm visible in the photo. The purpose of the repeater arm was to provide confirmation to the signalman that the road was set, without his having to go outside the box to check the signal was working correctly. See photo 28/41. which reveals the repeater arm. 3. Trains went 'up' to Liverpool Street and 'down' to Yarmouth, so 27/41 is a down train and 32/41 an up train 4. Finally, in railway terms, the Yarmouth terminus was always referred to as South Town and not Southtown. I have photo of the station running in board, which can be added to the gallery if you wish but I will need an e-mail address to send it to you electronically. Regards. Geoffrey Smith P.S. I assume the jury is still out on Stepshort/Lord's Lane bridge.


Was just having a search around your site when I saw two images of the Mill Lane/Harpers Lane railway footbridge. Now that was something!!

I'm 36 now and only just have a faint memory of going somewhere near Harfreys with my friend and his dad, when I was about 7 or so, and walking up some steps of a bridge. The centre centre had been removed leaving just the two ends. I can remember that it could only have been a footbridge but all traces of what it went over had gone by then. I can just remember there being sandy motorbike tracks around it as the area was being used by trials bikes or suchlike. Now, with modern wonders of Google Maps, I've been trying to see exactly where that bridge would have been. Harpers Lane seems to have vanished but the best I can see is what is now Hall's Precasters Car Park & Gapton Hall Road.

It could well have been on part of the old Gorleston-Lowestoft line near Southtown/Harfreys Road though. With it being about 30 years ago, it's hard to know!!


just been looking at your railway photos, which i think are great, i have a big interest in finding old railway sites and i am stumped as to where the footbridge accross harpers lane would have been, i know it must be under the industrial estate but cant work out where, any help would be great, many thanks
