Living in North Norfolk has many advantages but being left behind at night in Norwich having missed the last train is no fun.
For Bittern Line users traveling between Norwich and Sheringham the last train home is 10.45pm Monday to Saturday, and 8.36pm on a Sunday evening.
Greater Anglia said they would look into running later trains over a year ago. But one year on train users still have to decide between missing the end of a gig, cutting short a theatre performance, skip meeting friends in Norwich or miss the last train home. Even a trip to London for work or pleasure is governed by getting the 8.30pm from Liverpool St to ensure catching a connection.
North Norfolk Labour Party is calling on train firms to ensure no one is left behind at night by providing later trains on the Bittern Line.
Why should those who rely on public transport be expected to have their work or social life curtailed by an inefficient, unfit for purpose train service?
