Table 22 London to King's Lynn
Back in 1975 London to Kings Lynn was an infrequent, relatively slow journey from London Liverpool Street, 6 trains taking around 130 minutes for the 97 miles, a not very exciting average of 45 mph.
The difference to today's Fen Line timetable is most striking. On weekdays in 2013 there are 24 trains a day from London to King's Lynn, 21 from Kings Cross and 3 from Liverpool Street, with off peak trains taking on average 95 minutes for the slightly longer route from Kings Cross (100 miles). Admittedly today's offering is a plain jane EMU rather than a buffet/restaurant car equipped loco hauled set but in all other respects the service has been transformed for the better.
Another long gone feature of this, and other tables, are the late night mail/newspaper trains; in this case the 23:14 and 04:00 Liverpool Street to Norwich, the former having a portion for Peterborough (arr 02:11) detached at Cambridge
