Werrington in 2014
This part of The East Coast Main Line at Werrington is just to the north of Peterborough and there were water troughs here in steam days. The line to Stamford runs a long side the East Coast Main Line (ECML) here.
The level crossing here on Hurn Road between Marholm and Werrington was closed and replaced by a very tall footbridge from which I took these photos from.

Class DB class 66039 on the down stamford line on the 2nd of April 2014.
This down line to Stamford is wired from Peterborough to Helpston crossing, and is also acts as the ECML down slow befor re-joining the ECML at Helpston.
At Werrington Junction the Line to Spalding and Sleaford leaves the ECML.
In June 2014 Network Rail announced that they were considering whether to build a flyover or a under pass, under the East Coast Main Line at Werrington Junction. This is one of many plans, that Network Rail were considering in 2014. Will it ever gets built, we will have to wait and see.
It has now been passed for a under pass at Werrington Junction from the Stamford line in 2018. when or if it ever gets done?

There was a level crossing were I am taking the photo from. The road crossing was closed and replaced by a foot crossing. This has now been replaced by a very large footbridge here with both ramps and steps.
The Great Northern Loop line to Spalding and to Lincoln and Doncaster is now used by freight after being done up with all the signal boxes replaced by a signal center at Lincoln.
This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk it is on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.
Today LNER and GBRf and Great Northern are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More!9
