Burwell to mildenhall line
« on: February 28, 2017, 08:06:22 PM »
I live in burwell and during my existence the station had never been there. However I've always been interested on knowing more about it. This video shows more than I've ever seen before.  I thought I would share this link.incase anyone else was interested or just wanted to have a look.

I enjoyed watching that, this morning.
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

I actually travelled the line in one of those German built railbuses. May even be the one that is preserved on the North Norfolk Railway, be nice if somebody could tie that one up. The main reason for my reply is that I'm doubtful it was shot in 1959, as I was 12 then and about the time when I would have travelled on the line. A proper railway, with not just passengers but freight, I lived in Chatteris and that station provided employment for 21 people.
