The railways which ran through the East Anglian countryside and converged on the market town of Swaffham provided a vital service to their rural communities for many years, and made notable contributions in two World Wars.

However, apart from a short section retained to serve a sand quarry, they had all disappeared by late 1968. In this book we take a detailed look at the lines and the trains that ran on them in those more leisurely times.
