Very good picture!
Greetings from Hungary, Zoltan
This crossing no longer exists, in fact neither do the rails. This site now represents one of the stops on the former railway line between St Ives and Cambridge which is now a Guided Bus Route. There are a number of 'stations' along this route, and on some designated services the bus is able to leave the Guided Bus route and freely redirect on normal roads.
Some routes can go to the extreme lengths, as far as Huntingdon in the north to Addenbrookes to the south. The service is well thought of and is considerably used. Tickets may be purchased from machines at the stations, and some fares may be paid direct to the driver. Photographs will be posted on this medium shortly.
Yes,this was the old guardroom which also doubled as where the weighbridge was operated.If you look at the photo you can see the road surface is a different colour-this is because the tarmac is only an inch thick over the steel weighbridge.Curiously,i worked with a chap who spent many months doing extensive welding for the RAF when they were putting the Bloodhounds into the site.
Not a total write-off I understand. in 2012 my grandson found a 'guided bus' running along the route of the former railway line between Cambridge and St Ives, taking just 20 minutes!
'The Busway' from St Ives to Cambridge; a converted former railway.
'The busway' between St Ives and Cambridge. Guided buses do the journey in about twenty minutes.
I'm sorry, only from 0°01'00"W to 0°00'59"E coordinates. Happy New Year!
I really like these relics of the old railway.
sehr schönes Foto!!!
