 A4 60019 Bittern at Conington on the ECML on 12th April 2008
A4 60019 Bittern at Conington on the ECML on 12th April 2008
Steam hides the rest of the train as A4 Bittern comes across Conington fen on day one of The North Briton in 2008
Day one was Kings Cross to to Edinburgh. The first leg of this train was Kings Cross to York. A little early morning sun gives just enough light and with lots of steam it was worth getting up for!
This A4 took on water in Westwood Yard at Peterborough be for the rest of its trip to York.
At York BR Class 8P 4-6-2 no 71000 Duke of Gloucester was to take over the York to Edinburgh leg of The North Briton in 2008
Conington is a small village that never had a station in the Huntingdonshire district of Cambridgeshire. The village is a long way from the crossing. This railway crossing is to the south of Holme vilage. Conington Airfield or as it is now called Peterborough Business Airport and is between the crossing and Holme vilage and light aircraft take off and land over the ECML.
Holme village is just to the north of  the Conington crossing and Mainline steam trains stop between Conington and Holme on the down slow and going south (up) in the Conington tip loops.

Signal boxes that were along this part of the ECML
This website is ukraiways1970tilltoday.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.
Today Virgin 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!
