East Anglian Railway Archive

Welcome to East Anglian Railway Archive.

This site is primarily aimed at recording what was and what is left of the abandoned railway infrastructure which once criss crossed the region. Many services were closed after the Beeching Report of 1963, although some succumbed earlier. Today evidence of the existence of these lines is rapidly disappearing. Other galleries concentrate on the British Rail era between 1974 and 1984 with a few contemporary views. Much has changed on these lines with the closure of most manual signal boxes and the consequent loss of semaphore signals and manned level crossing gates. The March to Spalding connection also closed during this period. The site also includes guest galleries, one from the age of steam with some long forgotten scenes. So take a trip back in time to see how it used to be.

Contributions to the site would be very welcome.
