Why not become a station adopter?
I WAS very interested to read the concern shown about our railway and the lovely picture of Lowestoft Railway Station. Our station is an unmarked monument to all those service people who came through this once lovely old building, some never to return, but died for the freedom we enjoy so much now.

Our station is an unmarked monument to all those service people who came through this once lovely old building, some never to return, but died for the freedom we enjoy so much now. Neither must we forget the railway personnel, who kept the railways running for all the war years of 1939 to 1945.
Regarding an hourly train service, we need a double track, as it used to be, from Lowestoft to Ipswich; electric trains; with unmanned level crossings, properly and safely controlled by railway staff. An hourly service could then be created. For example, a train from Lowestoft to Ipswich, stopping at all stations. The next train could be Lowestoft to Ipswich direct, then to London.
Station adopters. There is much interest by people up and down the line Lowestoft to Ipswich and Norwich, and always has been. There are people who adopt a station and care for it. This is a recognised voluntary group who make reports on their stations, three monthly, to the railway authorities. It has helped keep vandalism down and also provided many a lovely flower display on the stations. I would recommend any person interested to get in touch with National Express Railways if they would like to
become an adopter. The only cost to you is your time and enthusiasm.
