Leighton Buzzard Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Leighton Buzzard railway station serves the Leighton Buzzard and Linslade area of Bedfordshire and nearby parts of Buckinghamshire. Actually situated in Linslade, the station is 40 miles (64 km) north west of London Euston and is served by London Midland services on the West Coast Main Line. Until the 1960s the station was the start of a branch to Dunstable and Luton, with a junction just north of the present station. There have been past proposals about reopening this route, as little of it has been lost to new construction, either for rail or as a guided busway. The station has four platforms. Platforms 1 & 2 serve the fast lines and are used by London Midland services running non-stop to/from London Euston. Platforms 3 & 4 are served by slower London Midland services to/from London Euston and by Southern services between East Croydon and Milton Keynes Central. Page's Park railway station, terminus for the Leighton Buzzard Light Railway (a narrow gauge heritage railway), is on the opposite side of the town.
