The Down Fast
The down fast has remained the same un-like the up fast that has a platform on it (Platform 3 in 2017).
This down fast line line was put in late 1960s early 70s so trains could do 111mph instead of the 20mph at Peterborough. All Grand Central and Hull trains are booked to use these fast lines. Virgin trains not stopping at Peterborough also use these lines.
