TRAIN services are slowly getting back to normal across the National Express East Anglia (NXEA) network today (Friday) after strike action was suspended.
Members of the ASLEF, RMT and TSSA unions had begun a third 48-hour strike on Thursday as part of a long-running dispute over pay and conditions.
However, action was suspended at midnight last night after a new pay deal was agreed, following three days of talks at ACAS.
There are still delays across the network today as services resume and passengers should expect some cancellations and delays this morning.

Bob Crow, RMT general secretary, said: "No one should be in any doubt that this improved offer has been won through the commitment and determination of our members on NXEA to secure a fair deal. It's their sacrifice over the past three weeks that has forced the companies hand and they can be proud of what they have achieved.
"RMT members have shown again that working people do not have to be the victims of an economic crisis that was cooked up by the politicians and the bankers. RMT members on NXEA have shown that if we stand strong and united we can win."
