Geocache Description:

Another extension to the sidetracked series


Oakham railway station serves the town of Oakham in Rutland, England. The station is situated almost halfway between Leicester – 27 miles (43 km) to the west – and Peterborough – 25 miles (40 km) eastward on the (as built) Syston and Peterborough Railway, the line is now part of the much bigger Birmingham to Peterborough Line.

Oakham is Rutland's only surviving passenger railway station. The line from Oakham to Kettering via Corby (which branches off just east of Oakham) until recently rarely saw use by passenger trains being used largely exclusively by freight trains. Since the opening of Corby station it sees daily use with trains from London St Pancras, as well as the occasional use as a diversionary route for passenger trains normally using the Midland Main Line. The daily services to/from London serve Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough, Bedford, and Luton.
