  • 22.25 Norwich to Brandon – Calling at Wymondham, Attleborough, Thetford, and Brandon

Trains will run with the maximum number of carriages available.

James Reeve, Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, said:

“We always try and support local events if we can. We have increased the frequency and length of trains where possible and practical. However, we are still expecting services to be very busy.

“We will do as much as we can to make journeys as easy as possible and there will also be extra staff on hand to provide help and information.”

Greater Anglia is advising passengers that there are still likely to be large queues and very busy trains. Passengers should allow more time for their journeys.

To avoid queueing to buy tickets, passengers are advised to get them in advance online or via the Greater Anglia app to reduce their waiting times at the station. To save money, groups of three or more people can travel using Groupsave.
