Greater Anglia will run additional trains on the Sunday of the Bury St Edmunds Christmas Fayre.

The four day event from Thursday, November 21 to Sunday, November 24 is expected to attract thousands of visitors to the town.

In addition to the normal timetabled service, there will be four additional services running in each direction between Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds on Sunday before and after the fayre.

Trains will also spend longer at Bury St Edmunds station, to allow people more time to get on and off the train.

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

Extra Greater Anglia staff will be at Bury St Edmunds rail station.

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 leave the car at home and travel there by train.

“Although we are running additional trains and extra carriages, we still anticipate these trains to be full.

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