Notes :
(1) Passengers returned to Cromer Beach by bus. Chris Totty comments: Buses to Weybourne for visit to North Norfolk Railway. Buses returned passengers Cromer Beach as train was attached to service train as far as Norwich. Does anyone remember if this was done as the platform at Sheringham New Halt was not long enough to take a 4 car train?
