Footnote

The Eastern Union Railway was opened for public passenger traffic in June 1846 from an end-on junction with the Eastern Counties Railway at Colchester to a terminus at Ipswich which now forms part of the Great Eastern Main Line. Ipswich station later moved to the site of the present station after the tunnel was completed.
