This Depot near the station nows see little use these days. There was nothing in the Depot till this turned up. This Colas Rail DR73924 is a Plasser & Theurer 08-16 Tamper.

DS class 67027 Western Star  in the Depot on the 4th December 2014
 
DS class 67027 Western Star was in the Depot on the 4th December 2014.
 
I think this class 67 was being used for crew training on the GN loop.
 
 
Peterborough Depot
 
Peterborough Depot sees little use these days. There was a time when rows of class 56s 47s and 37s and class 60s would fill these sidings. Trampers and the leaf fall trains plus the odd locomotive are all that use these siding now.

Peterborough railway station New platforms
 
At long last Peterborough railway station has some, New platforms. These were needed for when it all goes pear shape, there are just not enough platforms to go round. Even with all going well trains often had to wait for a platform on the river Nene railway bridge.
 
On Tuesday 13th December 2011 Network Rail announced a 43 million pound upgrade of Peterborough railway station starting in April 2012 and to be completed by December 2013. (There was still ongoing work  in Feruary 214 and it was to be April 2014 be for it was all done)
 
This work has now increased the numer of platforms to 7 and includes new lifts to each platform. There were no lifts to any platform at Peterborough be for.
 
The New Layout at Peterborough station has seen: The old bay (platform1) removed. Platform 2 renumber as platform 1 and made longer. Platform 3 renumbered as platform 2 and also made longer. The all New Platform 3 is next to the up fast line, built on waste land. Platform 4 and 5 remain as they were, but hve been made a little longer. Platform 6 and 7 are an all new Island platform.  A new goods avioding line has also been built along side platform 7.
 
Most platforms are signaled both ways with new signals on some of the platforms.

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 LNER , Great Nothern and GBRf are just some of the names on the trains. 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!
