A freight train was run during the Nene Valley Railways Steam Gala on the 22nd and 23rd of September. The video below was taken on the Sunday morning at the Nene Valleys Peterborough station.
The Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST was in United Steel Company no.22 colours was built 1956  it is on loan from the Appleby Frodingham Railway. It came from Wansford with two goods brake vans to the NVRs Peterborough station to pick up the wagons waiting in the bay platform during the Sunday of the NVR Steam Gala. The station was empty as every one was on the passenger trains with Tornado or Bittern.
When the 0-6-0ST got to Peterborogh (NVR) station, No.22 had to run round the two brake vans take water be for it then pick one brake van up and put it on the wagons in the bay.  It then put the wagons onto to the other brake van. This all takes lots time which is why this type of freight train is now gone into history. Nice to see the NVR recreating this type of train with its wagons. Who ever ( team?) has done them up,  has made a very good job of restoring them .

This video can be in seen in 720 HD for those of you who have a fast connection. For those of you who have a faster connection the 1080 HD setting can also be used, but this all but a pipe dream for most of us. Hopefully we shall all soon have a very fast connection!

The Nene Valley Railway now (2014) runs from Peterborough to Wansford railway station and then on to Yarwell junction. Wansford Station is on part of the old A1 at Stibbingson and is about 2 miles from the village of Wansford itself. The line is about 7 1/2 miles long. It now has the Fletton Branch which is about another mile and a bit.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk  it is a webe site 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,  and signal boxes any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos ot heritage railways.

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!
