Extra trains feature in new summer timetable
The summer timetable for train services provided by National Express East Anglia (NXEA) is due to commence on Sunday 17 May 2009 and features extra trains to a number of seaside destinations for families holidaying at home this summer. Details of ideas for days out by train to these and many other regional and London attractions are available from the leisure offers section of the NXEA website at:www.nationalexpresseastanglia.com
The timetable includes extra direct Saturday services between London Liverpool Street and the ever popular resort of Great Yarmouth, more Saturday services between Norwich and Great Yarmouth, plus additional Sunday services between Norwich and Sheringham, Ipswich and Felixstowe and between Ipswich and Peterborough.
James Steward, Area Manager for NXEA’s rural stations said: “We’re looking forward to a great summer in 2009 and with more families expected to book their holidays at home this year, we’re pleased to be running extra trains to seaside resorts such as Felixstowe, Great Yarmouth and Sheringham. We will also be running the usual additional trains to events such as the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival.”
Timetables on other NXEA routes are mostly unchanged from the existing schedules, but customers are advised of a number of minor alterations to some services and to check train times in advance of travel.
