The Nene Valley Railway and The  Peterborough to March line  also have there own pages.
Peterborough railway station is on the busy East Coast Main Line (ECML) railway line from London to Scotland. It is a very busy railway station with lots of trains to and from London and Scotland. There are trains from Birmingham, Norwich, Cambridge and Lincoln. Also there are trains from Nottingham and Liverpool.
To the east of Peterborough there is the railway line which comes into Peterborough under the ECML from Ely and to west the line comes into Peterborough alongside the ECML from Stamford and Leicester. There is also the line to Spalding and Sleaford to the North east. These are as well as the line ECML which runs north to South.
In this part of the Web site about Peterborough which has many pages there are all types of trains and locomotives from the 1970s till today. There is also some mainline steam at Peterborough.
The BR pages have locomotives like Class 31s and Deltics, also class 37s and class 47s and HSTS and DMUs and class 08s.
When the overhead wires came and the EMUs took over the local trains to Kings Cross and Class 91s and Mark 4s took over on the main ECML trains together with the HSTs.

In the last few years, class 66s from GBRf and EWS and Freighliner have taken over on a lot of the freight.  Passenger trains on the ECML were with GNER and are now with Vigin East Coast.

We have now got more platforms at Peterborough with lifts at last, So there will always be new photos to take.

See Peterborough 2014 till today for more detail on these new platforms
I have been adding details and changed the Peterborough part of this web site as the station was being rebuilt, and will try update the site as it all becomes finished.

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 Virgin East Coast , GBRf and Grand Central and East Midland are just some of the names on the trains around Peterborough 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!
