Ely Station
Ely railway station lies on the Fen Line from Cambridge to King's Lynn, which is electrified at 25 kV AC overhead. It is a busy station served by trains running to a variety of destinations including Cambridge, Stansted Airport, London (King's Cross and Liverpool Street), Ipswich, Norwich, King's Lynn, Peterborough, Leicester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool. Ely station was built in 1845 by the Eastern Counties Railway. The station was modified substantially in the early 1990s, at the time that electrification was taking place.
Three other non-electrified lines meet at Ely:
1. The Breckland Line to Thetford and Norwich diverges from the Fen Line to the north of Ely.
2. The line to March and Peterborough also diverges to the north.
3. The line from Ipswich joins to the south of Ely station.
