A4 60007 on THE TYNESIDER just to the south of the site of Abbots Ripton station.
LNER A4 4-6-2 number 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley was on the Tynesider on Saturday 27th of November 2010. This train was from Newcastle to Kings Cross station in London. The return leg was to be with another A4 number 600019 Bittern.
Although the photo does not show any snow, there had been much snow in the north east of England and it was bitterly cold. The train had just had a water stop at Connington.
Abbots Ripton is a small village between Huntingdon and Peterborough. It had a station but this like most of the small stations on the ECML this was later closed.
There are three tracks here,the  Up fast Down fast and Down slow.

This 'East Coast' train was still in its 'National Express East Coast' colours apart from a small 'East Coast' logo on the white stripe.
National Express  had only operated the InterCity East Coast franchise from December 2007 until November 2009 when it walked away.

This website is ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is web site on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was still  British Rail when I started taken photos.
TodayVirgin East Coast East Midland trains and GBRf are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!
