 DMU

1976

A view of the 'Marston Vale Line' from the hot summer of 1976. At Bedford St. Johns the main station buildings and water tower had been demolished by 1971 and it was a terminus halt on the truncated line to Cambridge, in a wide and desolate open space. In 1984 a replacement station was opened in the former freight yard at the north end of the triangle (above and to the right of the DMU), enabling services to continue to Bedford Midland. This station site was then abandoned and the site has now been reclaimed by nature. Photographer - Roy Burt. Gordon Edgar Collection.

 DMU

26th June 1977

The original Midland Railway Bedford station of 1859 had beautiful ridge & furrow glass awnings with intricate wrought iron supports. Here one of the St Pancras service dmus stands in the Up platform on 26th June 1977. I believe that the signal box glimpsed through the bridge arches stands on the junction between the Hitchin & London lines. In 1978, with electrification, all this was swept away to build a new steel & glass station located 200yards further north. This was to avoid the tight curves into the station from the south as the original platforms were on the older Hitchin lines. For 100 years since the Midland built its own line to London, this hadn't been a problem but to aid the speeding up of services the new station was built on the avoiding line curve to the left of this view.

February 1981

The carriage sidings at Bedford Midland photographed in February 1981, full of Class 127 dmus awaiting their next duties. The "new" Bedford Midland station can be seen in the distance, with another Class 127 reversing before returning on a service to St Pancras. These sidings were swept away to make space for the extended car park at Bedford, and the Class 127s were all replaced when the line was electrified by Class 319 emus. Lewis Bevan.

A small halt, also called Bedford St Johns, was provided on the new chord line that trains now use to access Bedford Midland. Lewis Bevan.
