Cambridge Branch Lines

Modelling Cambridgeshire Railways in the 1950s

Cambridge to St Ives Local Passenger Cab View

This video, presented in two roughly 500MB parts, shows a run on a Beta version of a scenario we are hoping to include with the route. The scenario features a Black 5 with 3 Mk1 coaches leaving platform 6 at Cambridge early in the morning, bound for St Ives with a local passenger service. Several other trains pass or are passed on the way, including a Jinty, passed near the beginning on its way to the Cambridge Council depot to pick up some freight.

Part 1 of the video shows a short passenger train travelling from Cambridge’s Bay platform, along the main line to Chesterton Junction, and on to Oakington Station. Part 2 shows the rest of the journey, from Oakington through to St Ives.
