Just hope it doesn't turn into the farse it has been some other years. I remember one year, back in Anglia days, going to get the 13:10 (or equivalent) of Yarmouth, and it being a 2 car 170, which was packed with people and luggage. Other times I have gone to do it and it's been cancelled, including twice last year. One other time though, I needed to get from Norwich to Acle, but since the loco hauled service didn't call at intermidiate stations I had to get the unit. For some reason, that saturday a further service was running none stop every hour formed of a 47+4*Mk2+47 set. I saw both the loco hauled services leave, and notice both were fairly quiet (most of the load seemed enthusiasts), then went to get the normal, stopping service. On the contrary, the 153 on the normal service was crush loaded, and people were left behind. I ended up squashed in the vestible behind the micro cab, along with quite a few others, a lot of luggage and a bike, and the exhaust right behind me. When I thankfully left the train at Acle, along with one or two others, I wasn't suprised to see that most people were stopping on to Yarmouth. Oviously the extra services were either badly advertised, or people were to stupid to realise they were running or something.
