WAGN 365529 in platform 3 at Peterborough railway station.
Platform three in British Railways days was the main down platform and had buildings with waiting rooms and buffets ect. Platform 6 was at the rear and there were northern bays used by the M&GN.
When the station was altered and the fast lines were put in around 1968 platform 6 and its buildings together the northern bays that M&GNJR trains had used were removed.
There was just a small waiting rooms or is it a shelter on platform 3. Passengers must use the footbridge to get to and from platform 3. The platform is used by both up and down trains. All the Great Northern outer suburban trains that come to Peterborough terminate at Peterborough.
WAGN or West Anglia Great Northern to give its full title, was the train operating company that from 1994 till 2006 ran the Great Northern outer suburban trains from Peterborough to Kings Cross.
Most of the Great Northern local services and commuter services from Peterborough to Kings Cross were and still are run with the class 365s EMUs together with some 307s and 321s. WAGN did not do a full repaint on the 365s .
The Class 365 electric multiple units were built by ABB at York between 1994 and 1995.
WAGN services from Peterborough were taken over in 2006 by First Capital Connect (see below) Very little changed bar the colour of the units when FCC first took over and the colour of the units was changed .
