The East Anglian
In September, 1937 the LNER introduced a new prestige express passenger train from Norwich to Liverpool Street each weekday. It was known as the 'East Anglian' and had all new carriages and specially streamlined B17 class locomotives. Catering facilities allowed all passengers to be served cooked meals on tables at their seats throughout the journey. To celebrate the 80th. anniversary of this train, a photographic display was prepared for display at Liverpool Street, Ipswich and Norwich railway stations and is now available for inspection at March Museum. Details of the introduction of this train and its history through to the diesel era is also available for inspection. March Museum is open each Wednesday and Saturday from 10. 30 am. until 3. 30 pm. and the exhibition will be available only until and including Wednesday 25th. October. There is no charge for admission.
Our new children's trail is made of Autumn leaves. There are 12 different varieties to hunt for inside the museum. Admission is free and it's a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!
