A4 60009 Union of South Africa into Peterborough

A4 60009 Union of South Africa comes into Peterborough.
A4 Union of South Africa comes into Peterborough from London past what was then the WAGN EMUs in the sidings south of Crescent Bridge. Union of South Africa has done a lot of trips along the ECML and has always put on a good show.
The 2000s in Peterborough has seen a lot more steam on the main line than for many years. Most take water at Westwood yard or Connington or now at Holme. Bittern's new second tender will let it get to York without a stop at Peterborough.
This is page one of the pages just on main line steam at Peterborough. In the 2000s to 2018 there was more Main line steam though Peterborough station than be for. The next& pages are of just some of the steam around the station in the 2000s.
Not all the steam locomotves that have come though Peterborough are in this section, as I take some photos of Mainline Steam from Conington & Abbots Ripton or Holme and along the ECML or I was at the other railway events or I was even at Work!  But I hope it will give some idear of what has come though Peterborough.
When Steam was finished by BR in 1968, we could have only dreamed of the amout of steam on the main line, we have today. Well done to every one involved, with keeping this all, on going.

This website is  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!
