Disruption on the region’s railways will be kept to a minimum over Christmas and the New Year period, train operator Greater Anglia has vowed.
Traditionally major engineering works have taken place over the festive season.
And in the new year most weekends will be free of service alterations on the Great Eastern Main Line, which runs between Norwich and London.
However seven Sundays and two Saturdays mainly in March 2013 will be affected and there will be bus replacement services.
Services over Christmas and New Year will be as follows:
-Monday December 24: A normal weekday service with an early shutdown during the evening on most routes.
Details of last trains are available from the Greater Anglia website or at staffed stations.
-Christmas Day and Boxing Day: No services will operate other than a revised Stansted Express service on Boxing Day.
-Thursday 27 and Friday 28: A normal weekday service on most routes.
-Saturday December 29: A normal Saturday timetable for most routes. Overhead line renewal work means there are some changes to services between Shenfield and London Liverpool Street with journey times extended by 5-10 minutes.
-Sunday December 30: A normal Sunday service for most routes. Due to overhead line renewal work, buses will replace trains between Romford and Shenfield before 08.10.
-Monday 31 December: A normal weekday service on most routes.
-Tuesday January 1: A revised service will operate. Timetable details are available from the Greater Anglia website or at staffed stations.
