Platform 1 in 2014
 
A East Coast  train uses what is now platform 1 at Peterborough on the 21st of February 2014
 
An East Coast  train uses what was now platform 1 at Peterborough on the 21st of February 2014
 
On the day I went to Peterborough station most East Coast up trains were now using the new platform 3. The new lights at this end of platform 1 were still not in use. Temporary lights which were on all the day, were being powered from a generator van.
 
The old Platform 2 at Peterborough station has been  renumbered as platform 1. The old Platform 1 was the up bay platform  and its track has been removed, so as they could renumber the old platform 2 as platform 1.
 
The new platform 1 will be used for the new 12 coach Thamslink servies to South London and Gatwick Airport which started in 2018 as well as the East Coast  up trains to London Kings Cross and East Midlands Trains to Lincoln.

The old Bay platform at Peterborough station
 
The old Bay platform at Peterborough station  (which was platform 1) with the track removed in February 2014.
 
Passengers only used the right hand side. The fence is new. The wires are to the temporary lights.
 
This bay platform could only hold 4 car EMUs. The new longer platform 1 goes over were the track came into the bay.
 
Nothing much has been done to the old bay apart from a tidy up, and it still in 2018 looks much the same.

East Coast class 91110 Battle of Britain Memorial Flight leaves the renumbered platform 1 at the rear of a train to London on the 21st of Febuary 2014. Platform 1 has been made longer and now goes under Crecent Bridge, which is why the bay had to go.
 
This Page is about the new (re-numbered) Platform 1 which is part of this upgrade at Peterborough railway station.
 
The old Platform 2 at Peterborough station has been  renumbered as platform 1. The old Platform 1 was the up bay platform  and its track has been removed, so as they could renumber the old platform 2 as platform 1.
 
The new platform 1 will be then used for the new 12 coach Thamslink servies to South London and Gatwick Airport which started in Febuary 2018  using platform 1 and 2 and 3.
 
These new services using Thameslink's new class 700 trains were to go pear shape when the new time table started in June 2018. With Many trains not running or very late. The TV and press were to be full of it in 2018. Too few Drivers, or those that were at work, not yet trained on these new services were some of the reasons.
