The March Society was given a talk about the progress of the town’s train station.

Adrian Sutterby, from the Friends of March Railway Station, told the group how new railway tracks had been laid down for the proposed heritage line to Wisbech.

Mr Sutterby also announced that disused parts of the station had been cleared and the footbridge had been painted, leaving the group free to refurbish disused rooms to offer out to the community.

Also speaking at the event was Alan Neville of the Greater Anglia Train Operator Company, who spoke about the UK network as a whole, including updates on the Cross Rail and HS2 developments.

Mr Neville commented on the parking issues in March but said the train operating companies were powerless to act as the parking was a local authority issue.

Next up for the March Society is a talk on January 9, about Ring’s End Nature Reserve, built on another of Cambridgeshire’s disused railways.

  • Good to hear. As for the Ring's End Nature Reserve, that's the March to Spalding route, which is likely to reopen (at significant expense) in the next 20 years or so. Nature reserve my foot, anyway - disused railways are always a near-monoculture dominated by nettles and brambles!
