On a weekend filled with Queen's birthday events, one of the more unique took place on the East Suffolk train line.
A brass band played on a service between Lowestoft and Ipswich yesterday afternoon, performing at each station on its route.
All this week volunteers from the Community Rail Partnership (CRP) have been busy decorating the train stations at Beccles, Lowestoft and Halesworth with red, white and blue bunting in preparation for the arrival of the Southwold and Reydon Corps of Drums.
The biggest crowd came out to see the band at Halesworth where the celebrations kicked off at 1pm with a special tea party.
The museum located inside the former station building, also extended its opening hours to 4pm.
