The Sunday service on the Norwich to Sheringham Bittern Line is being extended to run throughout the year.
It is the first time there has been an hourly frequency of service on Sundays during the winter period and throughout the year on the line, and representatives of Norfolk County Council, the Bittern Line Community Rail Partnership (CRP) and Abellio Greater Anglia welcomed the service.
The six extra trains, which started on Sunday October 5, mean 13 services will now run in each direction with the first departures from Norwich and Sheringham at 8.36am and 9.42am respectively, with last trains departing Norwich at 8.36pm and from Sheringham at 9.42pm.
Ted Gadsden, chairman of the Bittern Line CRP said: 'This is another major step forward in delivering more frequent train services for the communities served by the Bittern Line.
'Passengers are now benefiting from the best ever frequency of service on the Norwich to Sheringham line for the weekday, Saturday and Sunday timetables.'

The extension of the Sunday timetable comes after Abellio Greater Anglia's recent announcement that it is moving the last train departure from Norwich to Sheringham on Fridays and Saturdays back from 10.45pm to 11.05pm from this December - five months earlier than was expected to be possible.
