The Marston Vale Line was originally opened in 1846, and at one time formed a key part of the Oxford to Cambridge railway. When the railways were much more extensive than they are now, the Marston Vale Line acted as a key strategic transport link across the country. After the extensive cuts, the Marston Vale Line is the only remaining section of this link.
The line serves many varied communities. From historic county towns, to countryside, to tranquil rural villages, and even a new town, it is fair to say that all areas served by the train will have something to offer someone. This section of the website is simply a click-through guide of the communities served by the Marston Vale Line, before going on to explaining a bit about the future of the Marston Vale service.
