WAGN 365533 in Cambrige station in 2003
WAGN 365533 with a train to Kings Lynn in Cambrige station in 2003
In 2003 Cambridge railway station still only had it long platform with a crossover in the middle with room for two long trains and bay platforms at each end of the station. WAGN (West Anglia Great Northern) class 3655 and 317 EMUs used the long platform and bays at the south end and Anglia Railways with what were what were then new trains to Norwich used the northern bays. Anglia trains to Ipswich also used these northern bays.
WAGN trains to Kings Lynn and London Liverpool street and Kings Cross were also used the long main platform. Central Trains also used this platform with trains to and from Standsted airport and Birmingham. Anglia Railways also often used this platform with trains to Ipswich.The layout of platforms was ideal for wheelchairs as no footbridge was required, but made for a long walk from the bays at one end, to the bays at the other end of the station.
