Cross Country class 170 in the new Platform 7 at Peterborough on the 21st February 2014
The footbridge after platform 7 above the 170 is not for public use and is used by train crews. The lift for platform 7 and 6 can be seen on the the right of the photo.
This Page is about the all new platform 7 in 2014. As part of the upgrade at Peterborough railway station. New lifts have been built for all platforms
Platform 7 is part of an all new Island platform which has been built were the goods loops were along side platform 5. This new Island platform has been given the platform numbers of 6 and 7. Cross Country and East Midland Trains and Geater Anglia will use these platforms with trains to and from the March line. There are no overhead wires on these two platforms
Cross Country class 170636 in platform 7 at Peterborough on the 13th February in 2014
The new goods avoiding line is along side the unit. I do not think it was yet in use at this time. Note there are no platform ramps and there is a fence with a locked gate on all the platforms ends at Peterborough now.
Some of the platforms numbers changed in 2014
