Govia Thameslink Railway replaced in 2014 First Capital Connect as the train operator for both the Thameslink routes from Bedford and the Great Northern routes from Peterborough to Kings Crosss as well as Kings Lynn and Cambridge to Kings Cross.
 
This class 387 is in the new Thameslink Railway colour of white. These EMUs look very smart, while they are still very clean on what was a very sunny day.

Bedford Railways in 2015
 
Bedford in 2015 is a busy station with commuter trains to London. HSTs and class 222's  run by East Midland trains use Bedford station.
 
There also diesel units to Bletchley on the Bedford to Bletchley line run by London Midland.
 
Bedford Midland station opened in 1859. In 1894 fast lines that bypassed the station were opened. The Midland railway ran the trains till the grouping when the LMS took control.
 
From 1948 British Railways ran the trains around Bedford till Privatisation of the railways when Midland Main line and and Thamslink and Siverlink took over the running of the trains. From the 1st April 2006, First Capital Connect operated the the Thamslink trains between London, Brighton and Bedford till late 2014 when Govia Thameslink Railway took over.
 
There was a second Bedford station which was called Bedford St Johns this was on the line from Oxford to Cambridge. Trains from Bedford to Bretchley used this station even after the Bedford to Cambridge part of the line closed.
 
When Bedford St Johns station closed these trains were moved to the main Bedford station.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is 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 BR when I started taken photos.
 
Today Virgin  East Coast, GBRF and Great Northern 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!
