Caister-on-Sea railway station is a former railway station in Norfolk, England. It was opened in 1877.[1] It later became part of the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway route from Birmingham to Great Yarmouth, predominantly used by holidaymakers. The station was a few miles north of the terminus at Yarmouth Beach railway station. The station closed with the rest of the line in 1959. Today Caister-on-Sea is without a railway station, the nearest being at Great Yarmouth railway station.
