Fire near Kennet
« on: September 10, 2016, 05:54:43 PM »
A major fire at Higham next to the railway has closed the Cambridge/Ely Bury line today - possibly to the end of service.

There appears to have been no bus replacement from Ely but Ensign Volvo decker 128 was in Cambridge on the replacement service from there.  Sadly, not one of their new Chinese-built deckers.

Having been at the fire, I can see why trains were cancelled.... the building involved was literally next to the tracks and we were on the line with hoses fighting the fire!

The latest issue of RAIL reports that it was the old Goods Shed, so right by the line.
