PETERBOROUGH DEPOT 

This small diesel depot which is next to and under Spittle road bridge is just to the north of Peterborough railway station. It had replaced the very large New England MPD when that closed, after the end of steam at Peterborough. The class 08s and DMUs and class 31s used around Peterborough had been all been transferred away to the March MPD at Whitemoor.

To save these and engines having to go to all the way to March for fuel and minor jobs a very small shed and refuelling point was built near to Spittle bridge just to the north east of the station. This Depot was used for stabling and the day to day maintaining of these locomotives. It also did every day minor repairs.

When March MPD closed this depot took over the few EWS engines from March. GBRf having its own Depot at New England in Peterborough.

EWS 47785 Fiona Castle

EWS 47785 Fiona Castle was parked next to 47226 Manchester Airport Progress.

This class 47 number 47785 Fiona Castle in  2010 was  privately owned and is at the Stainmore Railway at kirby Stephen.

The two class 47s above were in the small diesel depot next to the station at Peterborough which was transferred to EWS on privatisation.

There was a very good selection engines here in the early years of the 2000's but it was soon realised that there were far two many engines on this small shed and EWS started to thin them out. New class 66s were being bult in large numbers and the older class 47s 56s and 37s were not now required.

The next 13 pages have some of the locomotives at this Depot in the years 2000 till 2013

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!
