Freight Loops at Peterborough station 

 
 
Freightliner 66572 in the goods loops next to Peterborough station

Freightliner class 66572 is in the goods loops which are next to Peterborough railway station on 14th June 2008.

 

These goods loops or goods avoiding lines were signalled both ways and are used for crew changes and personal time breaks. Trains could be here for a very short time or a long time, if waiting for a clear path between other trains.

Freightliner has about 175 locomotives of which around 127 are class 66s. It also has about 2,300 wagons many of which are new.

The new platforms 6 and 7 were opened were this loops were in 2014. A new single line freight avoiding line was built along side  the new platform 7 to replace these loops.

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!
