EDITORS' NOTES ABOUT THIS PRESS RELEASE
CAST.IRON's proposals, to operate regular timetabled rail services on the dormant Cambridge to St. Ives Railway line, are the alternative to Cambridgeshire County Council's Guided Bus Scheme.
CAST.IRON will restore regular timetabled rail services to the dormant Cambridge to St. Ives railway line, creating Britain's first community commuter railway.
A train last traversed the Cambridge to St Ives Railway Line in 1992. Up to Fen Drayton, the rails are still in place and, subject to bringing the railway line up to
modern operating standards, a rail service could begin in just two years.
The response to CAST.IRON so far has been 100% in favour of the rail option.
Details and full costings of CAST.IRON's plans were made public for the first time at a public meeting on 2nd December at the Holiday Inn, Impington, Cambridge and are now available on by visiting www.castiron.org.uk/VisionDoc.php
