"The Slow Train" was the title of a song by Flanders and Swann, written about railway lines just like the one you mention, following all the line closures carried out under Richard Beeching's 'axe'.

The Bittern Line in Norfolk doesn't get a mention, but "Cockermouth for Buttermere" in the Lake District does.
