Sheringham railway station is the northern terminus of the Bittern Line in Norfolk,England,serving the town of Sheringham. It is 30 miles 22 chains (30.28 mi;48.7 km) down the line from Norwich (including the reversal at Cromer). Its three-letter station code is SHM.
It was opened by British Rail on 2 January 1967 replacing the original station in Sheringham opened by the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway,which is located across the road,enabling the closure of the level crossing there. The original station subsequently became the terminus of the North Norfolk Railway heritage line. At the time of opening,the railway itself was listed for closure;the basic timber platform provided was intended to cover only the last months of the line's operation. 
The station is situated on the southern edge of the town centre,but within walking distance of the beach. It is currently managed by Greater Anglia,which also operates all trains serving it.
Trains operate hourly to Norwich. There are fewer services on Sundays,which alternate every hour between a stopping service (calling at all stations) and a semi-fast service that only calls at Cromer,North Walsham and Hoveton &Wroxham.
With the pending introduction of longer Stadler FLIRT Class 755 units by Abellio Greater Anglia,the temporary station platform was finally scheduled to be replaced. The replacement platform would be doubled in length,to 80 metres,and fitted with improved lighting and shelter. The station was due to be closed between Sunday 31 March and Sunday 5 May 2019 for the works to be completed.  In April,it was reported that the reopening of the station would be delayed due to a fault with supplied components.  Further delays were then caused by issues with signalling.  The station finally reopened in late May 2019. 
Between 2007 and 2010,work was undertaken to reinstate the original level crossing across the road to allow trains from Norwich to run onto the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) heritage line tracks. In December 2007,the BBC reported that Network Rail supported the plans to allow occasional crossing of the tracks for trains onto the heritage route. Work began in January 2010,with the moving of the NNR headshunt to slew into line with the National Rail section. The link was reinstated in March 2010,when the first passenger train over the new crossing was hauled by steam locomotive Oliver Cromwell from London Liverpool Street.   Occasional uses by charter trains and visiting rolling stock are anticipated not to exceed 12 times a year.
The North Norfolk Railway also operate a number of dining trains over the entire surviving section of the M&GN,between Holt and Cromer,during summer months.  Services began in 2016,working in partnership with the North Yorkshire Moors Railway,who were already a licensed operator on Network Rail;  these trains do not stop at the national railway station.
The North Norfolk Railway (NNR) –also known as the "Poppy Line" –is a 5+1⁄4-mile (8.4 km) heritage steam railway in Norfolk,England,running between the towns of Sheringham and Holt. The North Norfolk Railway is owned and operated as a public limited company,originally called Central Norfolk Enterprises Limited. The railway is listed as exempt from the UK Railways (Interoperability) Regulations 2000.
The Mid-Norfolk Railway (MNR) is a 17+1⁄2 miles (28.2 km) preserved standard gauge heritage railway,one of the longest in Great Britain. Preservation efforts began in 1974,but the line re-opened to passengers only in the mid-1990s as part of the "new generation" of heritage railways. The MNR owns and operates most of the former Wymondham-Fakenham branch line of the Norfolk Railway. The branch opened in 1847,was closed to passengers in stages from 1964 to 1969 as part of the Beeching cuts,and was finally fully closed to goods traffic in 1989.

Cromer is a railway station in the English county of Norfolk. Because the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (M&GNJR) line approached Cromer from the west,following the coastal clifftops,it avoided the steep escarpment which had prevented the earlier line from Norwich running all the way into the town. Consequently,it became possible to build a far more conveniently located station,near to the town centre and the beach. The station opened as Cromer Beach on 16 June 1887 and was renamed Cromer on 20 October 1969,following the closure of Cromer High station in 1954. It is 26 miles 52 chains (42.9 km) down the line from Norwich. Cromer is one of only two former Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway stations to remain operational on the National Rail network;the other being the neighbouring West Runton. Sheringham and Weybourne are the other two surviving M&GNJR stations;both are still served today on the heritage North Norfolk Railway.
Holt railway station was a railway station,since closed and dismantled,that served the town of Holt in Norfolk,England.

The company also operated a branch between Wroxham and County School,which closed to passengers in 1952,and had proposed a branch to Blakeney in 1878,which was never constructed.
The Wymondham to Wells Branch was a railway built in stages by the Norfolk Railway,Eastern Counties Railway and Wells and Fakenham Company between 1847 and 1857. The railway ran from Wymondham in the south,through Dereham and Fakenham to the coastal town of Wells-next-the-Sea;more specifically,the line ran from Wymondham South Junction,where it met the present-day Breckland Line. Passenger services along the line lasted until 1969;the railway continued to be used for freight until 1989. The southern section of the railway now forms the Mid-Norfolk Railway,with part of the northern section serving as the narrow gauge Wells and Walsingham Light Railway.
