Cambridge to St Ives in 1968

Lovely colour footage of the Cambridge to St Ives branch taken in 1968 - click on the picture above to watch it on the BFI site.

The closure notices were already up, but passenger services survived for another two years.

There was a persistent campaign to reopen it after that, but today the trackbed forms part of the Cambridge guided busway.
