This GBRf class 66 is in the Medite liverly and named Joseph Arnold Davies at Felixstowe in 2002 after the father of the Medite Chairman and Managing Director Roy Davies. 

GBRf was formed in 1999 and won its first contract in April 2000. GBRf was part of the First group, but Eurotunnel now owns GBRf . 

GBRailfreight (GBRf) has a depot workshops in New England on part of the site of the large steam MPD that was at New England. It now has a small depot in the old goods shed near the station at March to cut down on light engine movments between Whitemoor Yard and GBRf at Peterborough

Platform 4


Platform four started being used on the 25 June 1972 ready for when the new though lines opened on the 2nd May 1973. Most ECML down trains to Leeds and Scotland use platform four

Platform 4 was and still is used by up and down Norwich Cambridge and Birmingham Nottingham and Liverpool trains.

Freight and light engines can also use platforms 4 both ways.

Platform Four is on the eastern edge of a island platform with Platform 5 is on the outer western edge.

The new buildings on this island platform are of the style of architecture prevalent in the 1960's and 1970's bland and and insipid. But clean and just about fit for there use.

These two platforms are linked to the main station by a long foot bridge over the two fast lines. This footbridge was made longer when the new lines with platform 6 and 7 were put in.

There is also a Post office bridge that was out of bounds in BR days, but is now used for push chairs and the yellow mobility truck that carries wheelchairs and old people over who can't use the stairs, as Peterborough station still had no lifts, right to up till 2014!.

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!
