Train passengers will be able to enjoy a day out over the bank holiday weekend, c2c said today.

The train company will run a Sunday service between Good Friday and bank holiday Monday and a normal Saturday service.

Trains between Barking and Dagenham will have eight carriages and no engineering works are planned.

Kevin Frazer, c2c operations director, said: “We know the long Easter weekend is a really popular time for families to travel by train, so we’re delighted we’re able to operate longer trains with no disruption from engineering works this year.

A spokesman added: “It’s good news for passengers who want to travel with c2c this Easter, as they’ll be able to enjoy a day out over the bank holiday weekend.” For more information, log on to www.c2c-online.co.uk.
