Cambridge Branch Lines

Modelling Cambridgeshire Railways in the 1950s

RW2: Cambridge Lines 1950: Histon to St Ives; preview

This film, showing the route as it was at the end of July 2011, shows a BR 9F 2-10-0 steam loco hauling a rake of coal wagons north from Histon on the "Cambridge Loop". The loop in question was March / Ely / Cambridge / St Ives / March, and it was an important avoiding line for freight travelling to or from the Whitemoor marshalling yards at March. On the way you will pass Oakington, Longstanton, and Swavesey.
