This unit was with Greater Anglia and had its logos removed and is awaiting a repaint and its EMR logos put on.
This was the old Platform 2 at Peterborough station that was 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, platform 1.
The new platform 1 could then be used for the new 12 coach Great Northern servies to South London and Gatwick Airport as well as some of the up trains to London Kings Cross.
