A DMU in BR days going past the old platforms of the East station at Peterborough, heading for March, on the Peterborough to March line on a very cold morning.
The platforms of the now closed Peterborough East station can still be made out in this photo above. The Parkway road and river bridge has not yet been built. The siding to the right had been used as a PW depot just be for this photo was taken. These siding were removed soon after these photos were taken.
Peterborough East railway station was Peterborough's 2nd station. It was used by Great Eastern trains and LNWR trains off what is now the NVR. When the East station was closed its passenger trains were tranfered to what was then called Peterborough North railway staion, now just called Peterborough .
