Take a step back in time to see what Ely railway station looked like at the end of the 1980s by watching a new DVD.
Filmed in 1989, A Drivers Eye View is set from the viewpoint of a class 47 British Railways locomotive.
Promoter David Alligan said: “We depart Liverpool Street Station, London and head for King’s Lynn, Norfolk. The driver tells some facts about the different lines coming out of Liverpool Street and the various types of trains that we see.
“After passing the different stations in East London and North London, very soon we are in Hertfordshire and our first stop is Bishop Stortford.
“We then continue before stopping at Audley End, Whittlesford Parkway, Cambridge, Waterbeach, Ely, Littleport and Downham Market before arriving at Kings Lynn.”
