Milton FS (between Cambridge and Waterbeach)
Kings Lynn FS (south of Kings Lynn)

Under normal feeding the boundary is Littleport MPTSL, north of Littleport.

There are intermediate TSLs at West River and Denver.

There is barely enough power from those feeders to run the existing service, so I wouldn't hang your hat on any cost savings there.

Interesting thread because when Felixtowe to Birmingham gets electrified it would help costs if not too many new ones are needed.

New ones will be needed, and they will need to be big.

Supplying an hourly (with a few extras) 4 car EMU service is one thing, supplying half hourly 1500 tonnes freight trains plus (presumably) passenger services as well is quite another.

Could you make Milton and Kings Lynn feeder stations bigger on their existing sites?
