Whilst the Acle loop points may already be clamplocks, new control circuitry etc. will be provided which I'm sure would be counted in the resignalling figures. I agree Lowestoft yard has fell into disuse, but following resignalling it ought to be able to accept longer trains, should traffic ever pick-up in future.

I've just realised that all the assumptions made above regarding power point operation are flawed, as we have omitted the facing point lead onto the East Suffolk Line at Oulton Broad North, which is currently mechanically operated!

I must admit I over looked that one as well but as far as I am concerned nothing much has changed because the trailing crossover points at the junction are clamp lock operated so will they need to be renewed also ? I some how doubt it nor will the one at Acle . So if we stick with your plan for Lowerstoft that still adds up to 22 power operated points.
