Hull Trains had just starting to use these 180s in 2008. They are now being repainted in ther own colours . They now have five of these class 180s.

First Hull Trains run between Hull and Kings Cross they are an "open access" rail operator. They got access rights for 10 years in 2002. But this has now been extended to the year 2016.

These though fast lines were put in when the station was altered to get rid of the 20mph dogleg, that was in platform 2 at Peterborough station. Down trains though Peterborough also had no though fast line.

Trains not stopping at Peterborough station can now do 105mph though Peterborough, it was only 20mph be for though the dog leg in platform 2.

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 EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS 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!
