LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 nnumber 46201 Princess Elizabeth at Conington
LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 number 46201 Princess Elizabeth at Conington level crossing on Friday 6th May 2011
This train was the first Day of the Cathedrals Explorer  (2011) which had started at London Kensington Olympia-Minster station with steam. This was with LMS Class 5MT 4-6-0 number 45305 which took the train  to Bromley South  and on to Canterbury West be for returning to Londons Victoria  station were the Princess Class 4-6-2 number 46201 Princess Elizabeth took over for the London Victoria staion to Stevenage and York section most of which was along the ECML.
This Main line steam train was slowing for its booked water stop at Holme on the ECML.  It makes a nice change to see an LMS Princess Class 4-6-2 on the ECML.
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.

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!
