GNER up train at Conington in 2006
GNER up train at Conington in 2006
The Driving Van Trailer (DVT) is leading this up GNER train, with the class 91 pushing at the rear of the train at Conington crossing on the ECML. This is the normal way on the ECML.
The Mark 4 DVT (Driving Van Trailer or Driving Luggage Van) were built in 1988 for British Rail as part of the Intercity 225 (1C225) sets by Metro Cammell. There is only a drivers cab and a space for parcels or more likly today cycles.
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!
