Extra trains for Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre

Wednesday, 21 November 2018

Greater Anglia will run additional trains and have extra staff on hand for the Bury St Edmunds Christmas market this year.

Hailed as one of the best in the region, the fayre in the Suffolk market town attracts thousands every year.

To help passengers get there safely, extra Greater Anglia staff will be at Bury St Edmunds rail station.

In addition to the normal timetabled service, there will be 8 additional services running in both directions between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds on Sunday 25th November both before and after the Christmas Market.

All other trains will run with the maximum number of available carriages on the day.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said: “The Christmas market at Bury St Edmunds is one of the highlights of the Christmas calendar and we know many people choose to travel there by train.

“Although we are running additional trains and extra carriages, we still anticipate these trains to be full. Extra colleagues will also be on hand to help passengers at Bury St Edmunds.

“We expect trains to be very busy while the market is on and would encourage people to check before they travel.”

Customers can find out train and journey times on the Greater Anglia website or app.
