Main line express trains
never stop at Forncett, unless the company lays on a holiday special
to the seaside.
Branch line trains run on
a regular basis, especially on market days at Norwich, Pulham Market
& Wymondam. (Timetable to be announced later)
Coal delivery on a weekly basis.
Milk on a daily basis, no
bottling capability at Forncett.
Produce transport as and
when required by local business.
The fiddle yard
represents Norwich, Liverpool Street, and Lowestoft termani, as
well as the branch stations Wymondham and Dereham westwards, and
Pulham Market and Beccles eastwards.
Trains arrive in the
fiddle yard from the Up and Down Main Line and the Branch Lines. The
engines uncouple, drive to the nearest turntable, turn, then couple
up to the opposite end of their coaches for the timetabled return journey.
Goods trains operation is
a little different. After arriving in the fiddle yard from London and
the East Coast nonstop through Forncett, some wagons will be split
into trains for onward movement to Branches via Forncett, with some
of the wagons remaining at Forncett for unloading and loading, before
returning to the fiddle yard, then nonstop through Forncett to London
and the East Coast. Some goods wagons will be added to the branch
line trains with goods from the Forncett area.
