What's the craic with Peterborough trains on Saturday? 19:59 - Aug 12 with 3986 viewstrulyblue

Those rubbish box trains are normally only 2 or 3 carriages long and with 3,000+ tickets sold surely its gonna cause a big problem..... Bring back the football specials.

Poll: Player of the season so far?

Will be awful. Was hoping to get on at Bury but will be pointless trying.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

All aboard.

Or rather, some aboard and tough luck for the others.

Note that East Midlands Trains are not operating on this route on Saturday due to industrial action. The alternative is the Cross Country services from Cambridge.

I messaged them...

Do you know if you will be putting on special trains or extra carriages to Peterborough from Ipswich on Aug 17th?? 3000+ Ipswich fans travelling to Peterborough for football!! I hope GA are aware and planning!

They replied...

Hi Stephen. Unfortunately we do not have the spare trains, drivers and conductors to be able to guarantee to operate additional services. We will however try and put an extra coach on the booked cross country services. EC

2 if you are lucky, theyve been so short of working trains lately, and that was before they lost a couple more at the weekend after they'd hit trees brought down by the wind, hence why both Sudbury/Felixstowe lines were partial bus replacement today,

that the 1 carriage train more associated with that Ipswich to Felixstowe line has been known to fill in all the way to Peterborough from Ipswich at the weekend on one of the services.

Even these will be busy, may be easier to get one from Cambridge because a lot of people will be connecting at Ely. The train from Cambridge heading up to Burton way was very busy the other week but at least you can get on.

The trains I'd get from Ely only connect through Cambridge as they go Stansted to Nottingham. They will still be busy but I just want to avoid the Ipswich, Bury direct service as it will be mobbed. These services all stop at Cambridge anyway.

Bit of a drastic solution but via London might be the most comfortable way to go.....not sure how the cost compares though?

It's going to be an absolute mess towards Ipswich isn't it? Definitely a logic in staying for a few beers after the match instead of trying to force your way onto a tiny train at 17:50.

Man City v Spuds is the 5.30 game, so not a bad call.

The train to Peterborough the last time we played them was the worst journey I’ve ever had. Standing, packed in like sardines, boiling hot, couldn’t move and a horrific stench of BO. Will be driving this time.

Is there anywhere to get a pint near Ely station that you would recommend? The Cutter?
