British Railways Britannia class 4-6-2 number 70013 Oliver Cromwell comes into platform 2 at Peterborough on 28th Feburary 2009 from the up slow.
 
Oliver Cromwell
 
70013 is named Oliver Cromwell and is a a British Railways standard class 7 4-6-2 of the Britannia class. This engine is one of the National Railway Museum at York  National Collection engines.
 
No one in 1968 though that any or the right steam engines were going to be saved. A list of which engines that needed to be saved was made, but "Britannia" the first of the class to be built was to be the NRM engine, but in the end it was Oliver Cromwell for the NRM with "Britannia" being saved by others .
 
At the last day of steam on British Railways Oliver Cromwell took part in the Fifteen Guinea Special to mark the end of steam in 1968. This engine then went to Bressingham Steam & Gardens at Diss in Norfolk.
 
Oliver Cromwell was at Bressingham for many years till in 2004, to mark 40 years from the end of every day steam on BR, with the help of the readers of Steam Railway magazine it was overhauled at the Great Central Railway and then returned to the main line.
 
In 1968 no steam was going run on the main lines, but now there is at least one trip per day in the summer in the UK and there is often three trips some weekends

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!
