For several years Oulton Broad South had a static Camping coach in a siding. It was used as accommodation for holiday makers. Originally the station was named Carlton Colville, however it was renamed in later years to Oulton Broad South. The station was part of a modernisation plan that took place at the East Suffolk line in 1984. By 1986, the line was equipped with automated level crossings and radio signalling. However, to ensure the line's survival two sections were also singled.
