Rail Services in Islip
Our railway line is due to close for its upgrade in mid-February, when 'bustitution' (with bike and pushchair carriage) will commence. The new rail service from Water Eaton to Marylebone will open in the Spring of 2016, reaching Oxford later that year. All trains will run at 95mph, along twin tracks, all the way.
Construction of the new chord at Bicester, and of a new luxury home for displaced badgers, is now well underway.
Two further points of interest : all necessary funding for the East-West Railway project has now been committed, so we can now definitely expect trains to Bletchley and Milton Keynes, to follow those to High Wycombe and Marylebone; in case anyone was still wondering, the green shuttering alongside the railway is to control the movement of newts (except those adept at pole-vaulting).
