Yaxley is a village to the south of Peterborough . Yaxley had a railway station which is now closed. This was called Yaxley and Farcet. Both villages were a lot smaller then,  with 100s of houses built in Yaxley since the war.

Between Yaxley and Peterborough The London Brick Company made 1,000s of bricks. There used to be brick works all the way between Yaxley Farcet and Peterborough in BR days  along the ECML,. All these have now closed. There are page in BR days on this site at Yaxley This land is now being built on with the Hampton township and some is The Crown Lakes  Country Park were I have some pages on the ECML next to it.

The land to the east of Yaxley is fen peat and is some of the lowest and best farming land in England. The track was laid on reed and wooden rafts and has not sunk like the land around. The ECML is now on a embankment from Yaxley to Holme . Some of railway was level with the land when it was built. They have kept adding soil, and or ballast to kept the track level.

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!
