NEWS EXTRA: Video of a snow plough train clearing the region's rural railway lines

See this amazing video of Network rail blasting snow away to clear the lines linking Norwich with Lowestoft and Sheringham.

Network Rail and Greater Anglia have revealed some of the conditions that forced them to close the rural lines in the region last week. They've also shown how they cleared the lines! 

Here's their snow plough train on the Norwich-Lowestoft line. 

This is what the line was like at Strumpshaw Fen between Brundall and Buckenham 

More from the Norwich to Lowestoft line.

There's a railway line under this four foot drift at Salhouse on the Norwich to Sheringham line.

But the 'Beast from the East' met its match with Network Rail's own 'Beast'

Thanks to Network Rail and Greater Anglia for the pics & video!
