GBRf class 66746 at the Nene Valley Railway Diesel Gala May 2012
GBRf class 66746 Orton Mere May 2012
GBRf class 66746 at Orton Mere
GBRf class 66746 was at the Nene Valleys Diesel Weekend on the 19th of May 2012. As can be seen in the video below it left the event early due to fact that it was required for work on the mainline. It came and left using the mainline connection along the Fletton branch from Orton Mere (NVR) to the Fletton junction on the ECML. The Fletton Branch or loop line has now been brought by the NVR and se it is used on events as a branch line to add interest and give more options to run more trains.
The video below was taken at the Nene Valleys Orton Mere station of GBRf class 66746 at the NVRs Diesel Gala  on the 19/5/2012. It was a dull day and damp day.
You can also view this video in the full screen. Use the button on right of the video. To return from full screen press the same button.
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!
