EWS class 56 158 Barry Needham at the Peterborough Depot
Class 56051 under the Spittel road bridge in 2003
This small diesel depot is next to and under Spittle road bridge is just to the north of Peterborough railway station. It had replaced the very large New England MPD when that closed, after the end of steam at Peterborough. The class 08s and DMUs and class 31s used around Peterborough had been all been transferred away to the March MPD at Whitemoor.
To save these and engines having to go to all the way to March for fuel and minor jobs a very small sub shed and refuelling point was built near to Spittle bridge just to the north east of the station. This Depot was used for stabling and the day to day maintaining of these locomotives. It also did every day minor repairs.
When March MPD closed this depot took over the few EWS engines from March. GBRf having its own Depot at New England in Peterborough.
