Station building and signal box [ edit ]

Woburn Sands has a black and white "cottage" station building, one of four of the same design that are unique to this line. Two of the others are at
Fenny Stratford and Millbrook (Bedfordshire).
Woburn Sands recently lost its Victorian
signal box to the development and modernisation of the route. Until 2004 the line was controlled by staffed signal boxes located at various stations; but the entire line is now controlled from one signalling centre at Ridgmont.
Services [ edit ]
At present an hourly service operates each way, operated by either a
Class 150 or Class 153 DMU. There is no service on a Sunday.
Woburn Sands station, in common with others on the Marston Vale Line, is covered by the Marston Vale
Community Rail Partnership, which aims to increase use of the line by involving local people. [1 ]
