Weekend Showcase - Great Eastern Main Line - 2004 - Part 2

In this showcase we feature the excellent Great Eastern Main Line route, available from the Steam Workshop and as seen in 2004. Although at this time National Express have recently taken over the Greater Anglia franchise under their 'ONE' brand, the line is awash with a kaleidoscope of different liveries. Part 2 of this showcase takes us from Colchester to London Liverpool Street and despite it being more difficult due to a lack of stock available for use on suburban services, we still manage to capture some variety.
