The Flying Scotsman at Orton Mere
 
The Flying Scotsman returning to London ( A5Z54 08-30am Orton Mere to Southall WCR ) at Orton Mere NVR station on the 3rd of November 2017. The Flying Scotsman had been at the NVR for a short stay for repairs, after it had a hot main bearing during a Mainline steam trip between York and Peterborough on the 18th of October 2017.
 
The Flying Scotsman was back in September 2018 for a Flying Scotsman Weekend Gala

This locomotive City of Peterborough is now in the workshops having its 10 year overhaul ( 2017.) The good news is that 92 Squadron is now back in steam after its overhaul and looks rather smart.

The Nene Valley Railway 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 railway line is about 7 1/2 miles long. Trains run at weekends for most of the year.

This page is on the Nene Valley railway
 
Today , LNER, Hull trains and Greater Anglia 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!
