TQ8597 : North Fambridge Station

North Fambridge Station
North Fambridge Station
This is North Fambridge Station on the Crouch Valley line. This railway enabled the Dengie Peninsula from Southminster to South Woodham Ferrers to develop into London commuter land. The only reason this single track line (double in the stations) was allowed to escape the Beeching axe was its role in shipping plutonium to Aldermaston and spent fuel rods to Sellafield from the TM0008 : Moody Magnox (Bradwell Nuclear Power Station). A fact the history of the line at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) seems to omit.
