The most important news concerning our region is a date has been set for the Class 37/4's to replace the 47's on the Short Set running between Norwich and Yarmouth/Lowestoft. The change will take place on May 11th, with 37's top and tailing the Short Set (if it's required) until a DBSO can finally be used. Greater Anglia have also announced that the set will be used for the Summer Norwich - Yarmouth non stop specials replacing the through services from London that were "dragged" to Yarmouth by a 47. The services will also start earlier this year, on May 23rd, continuing to Sept 5th inclusive. So it seems that a sight like this will be consigned to the history books and the memory cards.
