Today there just two tracks here. All the brick yards have gone. This spot like many others is now all trees.

The bridge in the photo was replaced in the some time 1990s with a new wider bridge, built in two halfs to keep the road open.

A class 47 on a down train at the site of Yaxley station who's passenger service was withdrawn in 1959 and its goods in 1965. Yaxley village was a lot smaller then than now.

The two tracks across Holme Fen used to change into four here. The point for the up slow can just be seen in the right hand corner. When the overhead wires were put up the slow lines were removed between Yaxley and Fletton junction

Note the red gas cylinders for the point heaters.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk  it is 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 BR when I started taken photos.

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!
