Administrative history

The Great Eastern Railway was formed in August 1862 as a result of the amalgamation of the five principal railway companies in East Anglia. The Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway was formed on 1st July 1893 and continued to be a joint operation after the incorporation of the Midland Railway into the London, Midland and Scottish Railway and of the Great Northern into the London and North Eastern Railway in 1923. The Great Eastern Railway was also absorbed into the London and North Eastern Railway at that time. From 1898 until 1923 the Norfolk and Suffolk Railway had been run by a joint committee of the Great Eastern Railway and the Midland and Great Northern. All lines were taken into the new British Railways System on 1st January 1948.
