A lot of the freight north of Peterborough is from 2015 going to use the Great Northern loop by way of Spalding and the now reopened Sleaford avoiding line to Lincoln and Doncaster. This line has been upgraded with all the old signal boxes removed or closed and old gated level crossings upgraded .
In June 2014 Network Rail had announced that they were considering whether to build a flyover or a tunnel 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.

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 Vigin East Coast, East Midland trains and Grand Central 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!
