 Fletton Junction to Orton Mere     

This Railway line is now known as the Fletton Branch


DMU on the Fletton Branch at The Hotpoint bridge.

DMU on the Fletton Branch at The Hotpoint bridge.

The Fletton Branch gives the Nene Valley Railway a mainline connection. It comes off the ECML at Fletton Junction and joins onto the NVR at Orton Mere station.

The DMU above which is crossing the Bridge at the entrance to the Hotpoint factory at Fletton. It is heading for Peterborough station. This bridge was called the "Hotpoint Bridge" by Peterborough locals as you had to go under it to get to the Hotpoint factory. The DMU was on the Fletton Loop line at this bridge in the Fletton part of Peterborough.

There was no roundabout here as there is today, the road only went to Hotpoint Perkins Engins Fletton Factory and Redring only.  

There was a DMU from Peterborough station for a number of years to Orton Mere at Weekends.

This railway line known as the Fletton branch was still part of British Railways at this time and had served the Peterborough Beet Factory only for the last few years . 

Hotpoint bridge being repainted

In 2014 this bridge was repainted and is now in just one colour. The roundabout can be seen on the other side of the bridge.

The Nene Valley Railway now (2014) runs from Peterborough to Wansford railway station and then on to Yarwell junction. Wansford Station is on part of the old A1 at Stibbingson and is about 2 miles from the village of Wansford itself. The line is about 7 1/2 miles long. It now has the Fletton Branch which is about another mile and a bit.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk  it is a webe 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,  any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos or heritage railways like the DMU to the Nene Valley railway on this page.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS 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!
