Direct through trains between London and Great Yarmouth will not run this summer, with Class 37-hauled ‘portions’ replacing them.
The Class 37s, hired from Direct Rail Services, will operate from May 23 until September 5.
Trains will depart Norwich at 0906, 1025, 1218 and 1418, and return at 0947, 1114, 1255 and 1455. They are all booked to be non-stop and will run via Reedham. The trains will be top and tailed, with a Class 37/4 at each end. DRS will provide a rake of through-wired Mk 2s. Weekday operations with ‘37s’ should start next month.
