  • Could of done that if Norwich City FC were in the playoffs. But at least they won’t cause any problems to services when the pop band comes to Norwich on 30th May. Plus with Greater Anglia to put a stop to seat reservation because of the Class 745 trains will soon be in service from late this year.
