The Anonymous Widower

Needham Market Station

Needham Market Station is a Grade 2 Listed Building.

I was passing through on a sunny day and took these pictures.

In some ways now, one of the most remarkable features of the station, is that the Ipswich-bound platform has now been rebuilt using a new plastic platform. I wrote about the develoopment in The Platform For The Future, when it won a Railway Industry Innovation Awards for 2016.

Note.

  • It is an incredible station for a small town.
  • The platform by the station building is traditional.
  • The builders have done a good job on creating an acceptable subway.
  • The plastic platform has a very smooth and safe surface.

After having visited, I think we’ll see a lot more of these platforms.
