TL2069 : Buckden Station

taken 57 years ago, near to Brampton, Cambridgeshire, Great Britain

Buckden Station
Buckden Station
View eastward, towards Huntingdon and St Ives; ex-Midland, Kettering - Huntingdon East (- St Ives - Cambridge) line. The station and line were closed completely 15/6/59. By April 1961 it had evidently been converted to a dwelling house, but the line and signalbox were still intact. The signalbox was later removed to the Spa Valley Railway at Tunbridge Wells, but I can find no reference to the line being used at all after June 1959. [Can anyone help?]
