Smaller towns and villages near rail lines in Suffolk could receive a tourism boost thanks to new printed timetables.

East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership has helped people plan car-free days out at attractions and tourism hotspots by producing 20,000 new timetables.

Staffed stations, including Ipswich, Beccles and Wickham Market in Suffolk, will stock the new schedules.

Aaron Taffera, chair of the East Suffolk Lines Community Rail Partnership said, “We’re delighted to help promote car-free, sustainable days out in Suffolk.

"People can use the timetables to plan some great days out and at the same time help to reduce congestion and pollution in our villages, towns and popular tourist hotspots.”

Alan Neville, Greater Anglia’s customer and community engagement manager, added: “There was a pause in printing paper timetables during the pandemic when frequent service changes made it impossible to create a reliable printed leaflet, so we are delighted to have worked with the East Suffolk Lines on this now that things are much more stable.

“With these handy timetables and Greater Anglia’s great value fares, families and day trippers can leave the car at home and discover the wonders of these scenic rail lines and the fascinating towns, villages and attractions that are within easy reach.”
