Eastern promise as operators rewarded


New order on the Eastern: on 11 December 2020 Greater Anglia introduced the last of its 38 Stadler Flirts into traffic. No 745008 (centre) rolls to a halt at Ipswich with the 14.30 Liverpool Street to Norwich, while at left No 745002 is working the 15.00 ex-Norwich. At right is a Class 321 terminating on a service from Liverpool Street. GA won Golden Whistles for both its inter-city and commuter services.
