In 1997, FirstGroup rebranded Great Eastern to bring it in line with its then new corporate look.

In 1999 the corporate look was revised to match FirstGroup's bus operations. In 2004, the Great Eastern franchise was merged with the InterCity Great Eastern franchise and the West Anglia half of the West Anglia Great Northern franchise to become the Greater Anglia franchise.
