  1. Hello
    Rushden, Northampton is a rapidly growing community that would greatly benefit from having a new train station. This would significantly help open up both work and leisure opportunities for local people. Please can you let me know if there has been any further progress on this proposal?
    Many thanks

    1. Hello P Charnock

      Thank you for your question. Sorry for the slow response. Following the ATOC Connecting Communities report there does not appear to have been any progress made to open a railway station on the Midland Mainline near Rushden. The current period is a good time to progress a campaign as work gets underway to extend electrification from Bedford to Corby and Sheffield. This will offer more opportunities for trains to stop with more train services and better acceleration. My advice would be to ask RailFuture if they are aware of any group involved in railway service improvements in this area. I am sorry that I cannot offer better news on progress.

      Kind regards
