Lines around Newmarket


Two of the three lines covered in this book remain important parts of the railway system. One has developed into a well‑used passenger link between major centres in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, while the other has become a vital freight artery for container traffic to and from the busy terminals at Felixstowe. The conveyance of racehorses, containers and wartime explosives have all played their part in the story, and are illustrated here. By contrast, our third line was a typical country branch line, with infrequent trains linking Cambridge to rural villages. Like so many others, it disappeared during the early 1960s.
