Efforts to restore Lowestoft train station continue as organisers unveil the latest development in the project.
The East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership has worked alongside rail operator Greater Anglia to install new heritage-style lighting at the station as part of the project to restore buildings and create a new public exhibition space.
The lighting features modern energy-saving technology.
Part of the station dates back over 150 years, while the project recently succeeded in replacing three sets of doors to allow enterances closed for more than 30 years to be reopened, allowing better connection between the station and the town centre.
Martin Halliday, Community Rail Development Officer said, “We are thrilled that the new lighting for Lowestoft Station has been installed, they have certainly proved a talking point with their elegant, classic style far more befitting of a Victorian Station.
“We spent many hours researching the right style of fittings in order that they would suitably compliment the station buildings, creating another important link with the past yet providing the very latest in energy efficient technology.”
