Some of the trains on the ECML on the 22nd of January and 23rd  were being diverted  round  by March Ely and Cambridge and then back on to the ECML at Hitchin due to work on ECML between Peterborough and Huntingdon. These trains were also diverted the next  weekend (page at Turves).These were trains to the north and Scotland and some other trains. South from Peterborough on the ECML they were using replacement buses. The Azumas with a back up  diesel engine like the  801's were using this between Peterborough and Ely as there are no overhead wires. There was also the normal trains and freight making the Peterborough to Ely a busy line even on a Sunday.
 
Whittlesea station
 
Whittlesea station in 2021. The station has two platforms set about over 100ft apart. New wooden shelters and plant boxes have been added this year. Not all trains stop at this station.
 
There is a signal box which has signals and wooden level crossing gates that are worked by a gate person from a cabin near the station by hand.
 
The railway goes around Whittlesea with the station on the edge of the town and a fair walk from the centre of the town.
 
 
 
The Peterborough to March Railway line
 
The railway line between Peterborough and March  runs from Peterborough railway station and then across the River Nene and 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 line heads out of Peterborough to Kings Dyke were there are 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 line then heads out across the fens towards March. At Turves a small hamlet or village were 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.
