Greater Anglia will end First Class on most trains from January 2020.

The train company say this will mean around 20% more standard seats across the network.

They are replacing every train with brand new longer trains next year.

Only the new intercity trains, which run between Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester and London, will have first-class seating.

“After listening to customer feedback, assessing the ongoing increases in passenger numbers and taking account the rail network capacity, we’re taking this step to give the majority of our customers a much-improved service and advising everyone well in advance of the date from which the new policy will apply."

– Martin Moran, Greater Anglia Commercial and Customer Services director
