Discussions have taken place between DfT and Greater Anglia (GA) the local train operating company (TOC) about the rail capacity on race days. Currently1, 2 and 3 car trains service the Ipswich to Cambridge route. GA will have new 4-carriage bi-mode trains on this route by the end of the year, which will provide even more flexibility and capacity for all passengers on this route including race days.
