    Default Teversham / Cambridge

    After seeing this today, I think a visit may be in order, YES, I know its active, however i'll try my charm and hopefully a full report will follow in the future.










    Sorry about the quality of the photos, I didnt have a tripod.

    According to my log book it was Chipmunk WP837 and the date was 19 August 1992.

    This is the only photo I can find of the day so far, I remember flying over Duxford on the flight.

    In the last couple of days the gates and rails/tracks that allowed Aircraft from the Airfield to cross Newmarket Road/A1303 to access the North Works have now been removed.

    Quite a shame as i have never seen another set like them.

    I am guilty of not taking photos ,as to me they have just always been there and just assumed they always would be as the only gain would be a extension to the airfield property of a few inches.
    Still available on Google earth street view.
    The only photo i have seen of them in use was of a RAF B-17 crossing the road , but where i saw this i do not know.....Cambridge Evening News maybe?

    A quick google reveals Marshalls wanted to have a even bigger crossing during the 1970`s http://plan.scambs.gov.uk/swiftlg/Me...280-409792.pdf

    Above circa 2007 shows the run of the rails.
