  • I have fond memories of Letchworth station. My working life started in 1961 at the age of 17 for The Eastern Traffic Area in Cambridge. An early start, 7 29 to Cambridge, 106 bus to city centre. At night the 18 05 buffet express to Kings Cross which stopped at Letchworth. This I believe was the only branch line to have a buffet express. In the very cold winter with snow and ice on the rails and the stop start of the train, fellow travellers would club together and buy sandwiches and hot drinks. The early days were steam, I remember clearly the first day a diesel multiple unit arrived ( horrible, noisy and uncomfortable) it broke down just passed the level crossing at Harston. What replaced it? A steam engine. Happy days.
