The Down Fast
The down fast has remained the same un-like the up fast that now has a platform on it (Platform 3).
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 use the fast lines. Virgin East Coast trains now LNER not stopping at Peterborough use these lines.
