Greater Anglia are not in a good place. Rumours of their sizeable franchise bond with the DfT having been forfeited. Three entirely new fleets of trains on every route within two years. They’re not going to be expanding any service beyond what the DfT specified in the franchise agreement - they’ve got quite enough on their plate.
