Note

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. A connecting line to Bury St Edmunds opened in December 1846. Ipswich station then moved to the site of present station after the connecting tunnel was completed. The company became a constituent of the Great Eastern Railway in 1862.
