Soham railway station welcomes first passengers in 56 years
A town is welcoming its first rail passengers in 56 years with the opening of a new unstaffed station.
A single platform stop in Soham, Cambridgeshire, will form part of the Ipswich to Peterborough line, with trains run by Greater Anglia.
The 06:49 GMT for Peterborough was the first train to stop at Soham since its station closed in 1965.
Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Nik Johnson, will conduct an official opening later.
The combined authority funded the £18.6m station, which had been under construction by Network Rail since the spring.

Passenger train services will run through the station roughly every two hours.
The nearest station to Soham is about five miles away in Ely, which also has lines serving Cambridge, Stansted Airport and London to the south, and King's Lynn and Norwich to the north.
