Just after the first here we see where the line would of crossed the river ouse and stow road and headed off to marsh land saint James 

Next after we leave Magdalen Road heading towards Wisbech we cross 4 bridges two are still there and two are just small remains of the former bridges

number one crosses the river ouse relief channel  and still in use as public footpath

number two is just brick remains crossing the river ouse

number three are brick remains crossing stow road -vehicle road

and number 4 a still used bridge used by farm land access by public foot path and trust me its a long walk 

please look at the google map coverage I done for rough track lay out and bridge positions

Many thanks for looking.This is a old picture of Wisbech station I sourced via the internet.Sadly today there are no Remains at all of Wisbech Station.After Wisbech the line carried on out side norfolk on the Bramley line to March and even though the line is closed the bed and even the rails in lots of parts still remain and there is major backing for this to be reopened..please feel free to look at my other lines page seen here for coverage up to march and march Station.
