A Hundred Days To A New Rail Link

The title of this article in the Oxford Mail says it all.

New rail link between central Oxford and London Marylebone ‘complete in 100 days’

It will hopefully all be complete for the first train between Oxford and Marylebone on December 12th.

I think people will look back in a few years and see this date as extremely significant in the development of new rail services.

If it is as successful, as Chiltern hope it will be, I think we’ll see other companies start to develop new routes. Some which probably include.

  • The East West Rail Link between Oxford and Cambridge via Milton Keynes and Bedford.
  • Marylebone to Milton Keynes
  • Bristol Metro
  • Routes from Cambridge and Cambridge North station
  • Routes from Old Oak Common in London
  • Gospel Oak to Barking Line Extensions
  • Cardiff Metro
  • Merseyrail Extensions
  • Teesside Metro
  • Oxford Branch Lines

I have left out any extensions to the two vast railways lines in London and the South East; Crossrail and Thameslink.

December 12th, 2016 could be the dawn of a new Railway Age.
