Press Release 16 March 2004

CAST.IRON at the Grafton Centre

CAST.IRON - The Cambridge and St. Ives Railway Organisation - will be holding an all day exhibition at the Grafton Centre in Cambridge on Thursday 18th of March.

The exhibition will open at 9am and close at 5.30pm.

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.

Mr. Phillips said, "This 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. If you are in the Grafton Centre, I invite you to come along and see us."

CAST.IRON's latest public exhibition follows two major staffed exhibitions at Cambridge and Huntingdon Railway Stations along with exhibitions which have been held in some of Cambridge's libraries during February and March.

Other exhibitions are planned in the coming weeks.



CAST.IRON will restore regular timetabled rail services to the dormant Cambridge to St. Ives railway line, creating Britain's first community commuter railway.
