The Bury St Edmunds and Thetford Railway (B&TR) built the Thetford to Bury St Edmunds line from Thetford to Bury St Edmunds with assistance from the Thetford and Watton Railway. The railway was authorised on 5 July 1873 and opened on 1 March 1876. Services were operated by the Thetford and Watton Railway until it was taken over by the Great Eastern Railway on 22 July 1878. The line was 12.75 miles (21 km) long with the journey taking just under 30 minutes.
