March train station has been serving the Cambridgeshire town of March since it first opened in 1847 and sits on the Ely-Peterborough line. When the station first opened, and for some time following, March station was a major junction with a number of train lines operating to, from, and through it.
Over time, the station has reduced in significance on a larger scale, but it is still a vital transport link in the Cambridgeshire area. As well as regular passenger services now operating through March, there are an increasing number of freight services in operation. The station originally had seven platforms, which has now been reduced to two operational platforms – though two disused platforms have been readied for potential future opening if additional services are introduced.
As a signal to the station’s interesting history, a Victorian ledger dating back to April 1885 fell from the station loft when contractors were refurbishing it in 2021. There are currently plans to display the ledger at the station to celebrate the history of March station.
