East Anglia Cross Country


Railfuture East Anglia have published their aspirations for the Cross Country franchise following their request for ideas of improvements as there may be an opportunity for some additional investment during their current franchise extension.

Railfuture East Anglia’s short term aspirations focus on the following problems with the service within the branches area (i.e. Peterborough to Stansted):
  • Overcrowding
  • Reliability and Punctuality
  • Comfort
  • Late evening and Sunday morning services

In the longer term the service should be developed with rolling stock significantly better suited to this long distance service providing more capacity and shorter journey times.
