The signal box at Whittlesea still has some semaphore signals to control the trains. The level crossing is at the other end of the station and the gates are opened by hand from a person in a gate box.
 
In 2020, The Peterborough to Ely railway line is to be controlled from the Anglia Regional Operations Centre at Romford, and this box is set to close
 
 
The Peterborough to March Railway line
 
 
The railway line between Peterborough and March runs from Peterborough railway station and across the River Nene and then under the ECML,  past the site of Peterborough East station. Peterborough East was the main Great Eastern Railway Peterborough  station for this line. This station was closed and all services transferred to the Great Northern Peterborough North station, now called just plain Peterborough.
 
The railway line then heads out of Peterborough to Kings Dyke were there are still brick works. There is a signal box at Kings Dyke on the main Peterborough Whittlesea road. The first and only station is at Whittlesea which is still open. There is a signal box called Whittlesea here.
 
The railway line heads out across the fens to March. At Turves a small hamlet or village there is a signal box called Three Horse Shoes.
 
The railway station at March is still open and there is a Network Rail Infrastructure Yard on the site of the old Marshalling Yard at Whitemoor.
