Tickets are still available for Greater Anglia’s second charity diesel railtour on September 16 on behalf of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

The tour will start and finish at Norwich and will travel to Ely and back before travelling down the main line to London Liverpool Street and back.

It will feature two modern Class 68 diesels that have been used on services between Norwich and Lowestoft for several months – but which are due to leave the region in September.

Graham Butland, EACH chief executive, said: “We’re thrilled this second special charter train will benefit EACH. It’s a wonderful opportunity for rail enthusiasts to travel behind these locomotives before they leave East Anglia, while also supporting local families. We’re very grateful to Greater Anglia for their generosity and support.”

Tickets cost £60 and £95 for first class and can only be booked through https://public.greenrailtravel.co.uk/
