Testing has started on the first of Greater Anglia’s new regional trains that are due to transform services across Norfolk and Suffolk.
East Anglia’s best-known steam locomotive Oliver Cromwell is to pay a final trip to the region later this month before it is retired after 10 years on the main line.
Guards employed by Greater Anglia are set to hold another one-day strike the day after the two-day Christmas rail network shutdown.
Rail company Greater Anglia has been cleared to operate trains with stand-in guards during next week’s 48-hour strike by RMT members.
A threatened strike by conductor/guards on some Greater Anglia trains should not affect services, the company has insisted.
