Ramsey East railway station was a railway station in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire, which is now closed. It opened on 16 September 1889, and closed to passenger traffic on 22 September 1930, and to freight traffic on 17 September 1956. The site is now occupied by the west side of Bury Road Industrial Estate, and a new housing development aptly called Signal Road and The Sidings. It was the terminus of a branch line connected via Warboys railway station to Somersham, where it joined the main Great Eastern Railway line between St Ives and March, which at the its upper end towards March is now occupied by the route A141 between Chatteris and March.
