All aboard the music express as a train journey inspired by the 19th century travels through the county. 

To celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Chappel and Wakes Colne Viaduct, the Essex & South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership is hosting a weekend of activities. 

An old-time music train inspired by Victorian England will travel along the Gainsborough Line from Marks Tey in Essex to Sudbury in Suffolk. 

Old music hall songs will be performed on the roundtrip and a spokesman for the community partnership said: "Feel free to dress up in Victorian dress."
