Issued 13 March 2019

 

Following problems last autumn, we monitored the arrival in Thetford for a week of three key commuter trains home from Cambridge, four from Norwich and three expresses from Liverpool which carry a few commuters and more business travellers home to Thetford. All of the monitored services ran, with 98% reaching Thetford within ten minutes of schedule.
