May 2019 Timetable changes?
« on: February 11, 2019, 08:18:19 PM »
Any rumours as to what will happen with the May 2019 timetable changes?

I've seen a rumour on another forum that the hourly Peterborough - Ipswich won't happen until Ely North and Haughey Junction improvements do too, which would be very disappointing if true!

I feel like I remember Lea Valley / Star was supposed to be finished by sometime around now and things certainly seem to be looking a lot more complete, but I can't seem to find anything with a date on it?

But might Norwich - Stansted Airport be the thing that does happen?  The FLIRTs seem to be arriving in the UK in decent numbers?

And is there any news about Th*meslink?  Might we see the May 2018 timetable?

Perhaps its too early for Norwich to Stansted, will be the mew trains when it happens, cant see them being 100% up and running by then

I think the information on Ipswich  - Peterborough is correct. 2 hourly for the foreseeable future. As far I know, the FLIRTS will not be in service then.

On a more positive note, it looks as if 2 fast trains an hour between Cambridge and Kings Cross will be restored on Saturdays.
