Manea railway station /ˈmn/, on the Ely to Peterborough Line, serves the village of Manea in Cambridgeshire, England.

History[edit]

In 1966, the Minister of Transport Barbara Castle refused British Rail's request to close the station, although she did agree to the closure of the stations at Stonea and Bentley.[1]

Services[edit]

The signal box

Currently, from Mondays to Saturdays, there is a basic two-hourly service on Abellio Greater Anglia trains between Peterborough and Ipswich, with an additional two trains in each direction operated by CrossCountry on the Stansted Airport to Birmingham New Street route. There is no Sunday service. An amended weekday service operates on most Bank holidays.[2]

This improved service started on 28 December 2013 [3]
