Yarmouth South Town

During the era of railway closures, the sequence of events was typically: Disappearance of DMUs, lifting of the track, structural decay of the buildings and ultimately demolition of the ruins. At Yarmouth South Town, the actual sequence was rather different: Withdrawal of services, track lifting, dereliction and demolition – to leave a DMU. This photo was taken on the site of the Yarmouth South Town terminus on 16th May 1981 after the station had been razed completely and shows one of the last railway relics to have been part of a Cravens DMU body that had been used as a store.
