S160 6046 at the Peterborough Nene Valley railway station about to leave for Wansford on Sunday the 14th of September 2014. 

This 2-8-0 steam locomotive S 160 6046 was built during the 2nd World in the USA by the Baldwin Locomotive Company in Philadelphia for the United States Army Corps. This was one of about 2120 that were built . This locomotive went to France from the USA and did not come first to the UK.

6046 was one of locomotives built to replace the many locomotives lost during the war and needed after D Day to get the railways working again. They were not built to last, but be quick and easy to make. After its time in France with SNCF, it ended up in Hungary from were it was saved and brought to the UK. The locomotive is from the Churnet Valley Railway.

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 like the one this page on the NVR.

Today East Coast, Virgin Trains and East Midland Trains are just some of the names on the trains..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!
