New train station 'possible'
Corby town centre
Corby is the biggest European town without a train station
Plans for a new railway service and station for Corby are still a possibility as the Strategic Rail Authority looks at a new study.

Eighteen months ago the train operator Midland Mainline ran a feasibility study but decided it was not a commercially viable proposition for them.

Catalyst Corby, the town's urban regeneration company, said they are in talks with the SRA about the possibility of bringing a rail service to the town.

Earlier this year, Catalyst Corby put forward a 20-year, 4bn plan to revamp the town.

One of the main objectives was to bring back Corby's passenger rail service.

It is currently the biggest town in Europe without a train station.
