365 EMUs in Platform 3

WAGN 365529 in platform 3 at Peterborough railway station.

Platform three in British Railways days was the main down platform and had buildings with waiting rooms and buffets ect. Platform 6 was at the rear and there were northern bays used by the M&GN.

When the station was altered and the fast lines were put in around 1968 platform 6 and its buildings together the northern bays that M&GNJR trains had used were removed.

There was just a small waiting rooms or is it a shelter on platform 3. Passengers must use the footbridge to get to and from platform 3. The platform is used by both up and down trains. All the Great Northern outer suburban trains that come to Peterborough terminate at Peterborough.

WAGN

WAGN or West Anglia Great Northern to give its full title, was the train operating company that from 1994 till 2006 ran the Great Northern outer suburban trains from Peterborough to Kings Cross.

Most of the Great Northern local services and commuter services from Peterborough to Kings Cross were and still are run with the class 365s EMUs together with some 307s and 321s. WAGN did not do a full repaint on the 365s .

The Class 365 electric multiple units were built by ABB at York between 1994 and 1995.

WAGN services from Peterborough were taken over in 2006 by First Capital Connect (see below) Very little changed bar the colour of the units when FCC first took over and the colour of the units was changed .

First Capital Connect

First Capital Connect took over the local London trains from WAGN in 2006. The Class 365 EMUs are still the main EMUs used for the London trains from Peterborough.

First Capital Connect has repainted (or added vinyls to?) all the 365s bar the one's with the town logos on there sides.

Platform 3 and 1 are the main platforms used by First Capital Connect (as it was also with WAGN ) during the day but very early morning trains use platform 2 as well. Platform 4 is also used at at peak times for trains from London.

Off peak First Capital Connect (and WAGN trains) stop all stations to Stevenage then with stops at some (or no stops) at stations to Kings Cross . Some of the peak time trains stop at only the large stations.

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!
