Victorian ticket ledger found at March railway station

23 September, 2021

A Victorian ticket ledger has been discovered at a railway station by contractors after it fell through a ceiling they were repairing.

The luggage ledger dated back to April 1885, when March Railway Station in Cambridgeshire first opened.

Other Victorian items found in the unused loft included a Great Eastern Railway sack and three small log books.

Greater Anglia customer service manager Anita Stuart said it was "lovely to have uncovered this link to the past".

The contractors were removing rotten woodwork when the hand-written ledger, detailing entries of all the passenger luggage and parcels sent from the station, dropped out of the loft.
