Does anyone know anything about the siding (effectively a short branch line) which diverged from the London & North Western Railway branch from Oxford to Bletchley to serve the aerodrome? Are there, for example, any obvious remains?

Hello Stanley,

Yes there was a branch line into the airfield from the Bletchley to Oxford line just up from the now abandoned Launton station. It is possible to track its path on google earth from start to finish.

Thank you Nick. I have been trying to obtain some London & North Western or LMS railway working instructions for this siding, which will obviously contain many details (they are, in effect, the railwy version of a "Notam", and would have been first issued when the siding was brought into use).
