Brake van rides on the Fletton Branch  23rd Febuary in 2013 

This brake van ride on the Fletton Branch heads for Orton Mere.

The 23rd of Febuary 2013 was the first day of brake van rides along the Fletton Branch. Which is now part of the Nene Valley railway. It runs from Orton Mere to Fletton Junction on the East Coast Main Line. There are gates across the track at the ECML end which are opened when the NVR uses the main line connection .  

It was bitter cold with snow at times that day. It was Febuary of course, and it was very cold on that brake van.

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!
