Nice to see a Deltic (class 55) back on the ECML with this Spitfire Tours  "The Capital Deltic" which was on 12th June 2010.
 
I had got ready for this photo at the small crossing at Conington. The Deltic came into view on the down slow, going slowly, as it had a red signal near Holme, were the down slow ends and rejoins the down fast
 
While I waited for the train came a little nearer,  an East Coast train class 91 came into view at the full line speed on the down fast. The photo above is well cropped as it over took the Deltic well be for my planed photo spot.
 
Things had gone a little more to plan with the up Deltic run in the morning at Abbots Ripton.

Conington
 
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!
