The Eastern Region was a region of British Railways from 1948, whose operating area could be identified from the dark blue signs and colour schemes that adorned its station and other railway buildings.

Together with the North Eastern Region (which it absorbed in 1967), it covered most lines of the former London and North Eastern Railway, except in Scotland. By 1988 the Eastern Region had been divided again into the Eastern Region and the new Anglia Region, with the boundary points being between Peterborough and Whittlesea,[1] and between Royston and Meldreth.[2] The region ceased to be an operating unit in its own right in the 1980s and was wound up at the end of 1992.

IT was Sectored into: Network SouthEast, InterCity and Regional Railways.
