Sweeping in through the rich Bedfordshire countryside, passengers on East Coast Main Line trains will quickly see why the RSPB set up home in Sandy, a ten-minute walk north from the station. Just fifty miles outside London, it's clear to see how the woodland and trails, heath and grassland ten minutes to the east of the station by bus would appeal to many a twitcher. Like most of Bedfordshire's villages, Sandy is a popular commuter hub, with half-hourly trains to London Kings Cross, from platform 1, taking about fifty minutes. From platform 2, passengers can be in Peterborough in thirty minutes. The station was originally built in 1850, but while the yellow-brick building still stands, the wrought-iron details and elaborate canopies have long since gone. And change marches on, with both platforms being extended to take up to 12 carriages and the large pay-and-display car park ay the front of the station illustrating how busy the station can be.

Station details & facilities

Sandy station is accessible step free from both Potton Road and Station Road, with the station concourse, just off the pay-and-display car park on Station Road, home to a ticket window and kiosk. Ticket machines are outside the station building. The concourse leads directly to platform 2, with bench seating, help point and stairs leading to the footbridge to platform 1, where there is a passenger shelter and more bench seating.
