RH074 The Newmarket and Chesterford Railway

NEW MAY 2020. In 1845 the Newmarket Railway was established to link the town to Great Chesterford on the Eastern Counties Railway, "with a branch to Cambridge". Once that branch linking Newmarket to Cambridge opened in 1851, however, the original line was soon abandoned.

This item consists of three secondary accounts of that railway. The main one here comes from a two-part article in the Railway Magazine which featured in November and December 1941, with three accompanying photographs published exactly a year later in November/December 1942. It was quite an erudite account which had originally appeared in the Transactions of the Cambridge Archaeological Society back in 1927. The author was Kenneth Brown.

The second account is taken from our scans of the LNER Magazine. Entitled 'The Old Chesterford-Newmarket Railway', it was attributed to somebody with the initials S.A.R.

Finally comes 'A railway that disappeared (the Newmarket Railway)', written by someone called Burge Garlinge. It is part of our scans of the Railway and Travel Monthly, and appeared in the issue for April 1916.

The file is word-searchable and has bookmarks to the main sections. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
