Littleport station sign

Littleport, on the Fen Line between Ely and King's Lynn has platforms raised above the level of the surrounding countryside. As at Ely, there is a low bridge under the line and a level crossing for other traffic. Unlike at Ely, the level crossing is still manually operated with gates, as can be seen from this view South along the Northbound platform:

The Southbound platform has a wooden shelter:

The wooden shelter later burned down, though we do not know how. In 2007 a new shelter was put up, seen here in early 2008:
