Bletchley photos!

Many of you will recognize the location of this instantly, others may say what an eyesore! Have to say over the years some locals have even wondered why on earth they bothered to build the flyover, the amount of trains you see trundling over it nowadays has become a rarity! Beechings axe of the Bletchley to Oxford section of the ‘old varsity line’ had not helped either, coupled with the lifting of the track from Bedford St John’s station to the east of the country.

Now, however, there has been a change of heart! An ‘ambitious plan’ for an East-West rail link has been planned, this will link the East and West parts of the country once again. The ‘old’ Bletchley to Oxford line is currently being upgraded and this will enable express trains to run along the track. Who knows we may find the old flyover back in use again!
