Just after the River Nene is crossed the Peterborough to March line goes under the East Coast Main line (ECML) and alongside the Fair meadow car park. (this car park was were all the fairs were held and some times still are) In BR days you could take a good photo here, but trees were planted alongside the line here and anti vandal fences put up. 

The line to Rugby and Northampton had two tracks on this side to were the Nene Valleys Peterborough station is now. The line to Peterborough station coming off the Northamton line.

This website is  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!
