Conington Crossing in 2008
National Express East Coast down train at Conington in April 2008
National Express East Coast took over from GNER on the 9th December 2007 The White stripe was put over GNER red stripe in Kings Cross station between trains. The hurry with which this was put on can just be made out on some of the Mark fours!
This was I hoped a stop gap be for the Grey and White 'National Express East Coast' colours were put on these class 91s and mark 4s with a lot more care than this time.

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 LNER, 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!
