West Anglia Great Northern (WAGN) was a UK train operating company that existed from the start of railway privatisation in 1994 until a redrawing of franchise areas took effect in 2006.

The company operated a network of commuter and local services from London King's Cross and London Liverpool Street stations to north London, Cambridgeshire and east Hertfordshire, along with border areas of Essex and Norfolk.
