Cambridge Railway Station Exhibition
Date Issued: 22 March 2004
CAST.IRON - The Cambridge and St. Ives Railway Organisation - will be holding an all day exhibition on the main platform at Cambridge Railway Station on Friday 26th March.
The exhibition will be open from 6am until 9pm.
Throughout the day CAST.IRON's Chairman, Tim Phillips and Officers from the organisation will be present to answer questions about their proposals to restore rail services to the Cambridge and St.Ives railway line.
CAST.IRON held its first exhibition at Cambridge Railway Station on the 27th February.
Jerry Alderson, one of CAST.IRON's Executives said, "Both WAGN and National Express who operate rail services from the station have allowed us to hold the exhibition here again, for which we are grateful. It shows how much support there is in the rail industry for CAST.IRON's plans."
Tim Phillips, CAST.IRON's Chairman said, "This again is an excellent opportunity for the public to see CAST.IRON's plans for reopening part of the local, regional and national railway network in the most environmentally-friendly way - something the Guided Bus scheme proposed by the County Council will not achieve."
CAST.IRON held an exhibition on the London bound platform of Huntingdon Railway Station on Friday 12th March. "The exhibition proved so popular that we ran out of copies of one of our leaflets," said Tim Phillips.
NOTES ABOUT THIS PRESS RELEASE
Cambridgeshire County Council's Guided Bus proposals are with the Government, which must decide whether to approve an application under the Transport and Works Act.
People have until April 2nd to comment on the plans, and a public inquiry into the scheme is expected in September.
CAST.IRON will restore regular timetabled rail services to the dormant Cambridge to St. Ives railway line creating Britain's first community commuter railway.
