Platform 3 on the up fast
 
  Class 91101 Flying Scotsman on sides
 
Class 91101 "Flying Scotsman" logos at the rear of a train to Kings Cross in platform 3, which on the up fast on the 12th March 2015.
 
The name Flying Scotsman on this class 91 is for the train of that name, not the locomotive. To make the public even more confused this locomotive is used on any train and its DVT is often on other trains. When the A3 steam Locomotive with the name Flying Scotsman gets back on the main line, they will be even more confused.

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 someof the platforms.
