Train services between London and Norwich were disrupted earlier today because of a broken down train.

Greater Anglia said Norwich-bound services were affected because of the broken down train between Ipswich and Needham Market.

It was the 12.30pm London Liverpool Street to Norwich service which had broken down.

The line was blocked and services delayed, but engineers have now fixed the train and moved it out of the way.

But train services between London Liverpool Street and Norwich, Ipswich to Peterborough and Ipswich to Cambridge may be cancelled or delayed by up to 30 minutes, until the service recovers.


  • What a joke the raikl system has become, and the fares, out of this world. When I worked for B R many years ago a day return to London from Norwich was a Pound and today you are talking about a 107 and proposing to make peak times nearly 150 quid, come on people use some common. The system has removed as many people as they can from the "service" and still wants to charge more, on what basis, cannot be reliability, then must be profit, so for whom? Government? the rail companies? I would suggest re nayionalise them and put the whole system on a firm footing. Prehaps then you will get back to a more modern and reliable transport system.

  • Surely delays & disruption ARE the norm on this Godforsaken line.

  • So much for Chloe Smith. Is her 'cure the railways' initiative going to take longer than expected to deliver, like the rest of her hot air and empty promises that the EDP likes to plug.

  • Can't blame Network Rail for this one. Travelling on this line is an expensive and unfunny joke. Usually train travel is much preferable to the car, but faced with the cost and unreliability of this line I am back to the delights of the A11.

  • This is "dog bites man" stuff. News would give us "man bites dog" stuff - that is, that all train services are running normally, and fare prices remain unchanged. Fat chance - we know!
