A lovely image of the quiet frontage of Peterborough North Station, taken from upper floor of the Great Northern Hotel in 1939.
The rare site of a GWR engine taking on water at Peterborough during what must have been a special railtour. Pictured is #7029 Clun Castle which was withdrawn from service in 1965 – the date on the rear of this photo. In 1967, the same engine made a number of special railtours from Kings Cross and this may actually be one of those tours.
One of the first engines ever to be preserved, Clun Castle is currently awaiting boiler work at its preservation home in Tyseley, near Birmingham.
Two fascinating illustrations dating to 1845 and the opening of what is now referred to locally as the Nene Valley Railway.
The footings to the original Lynch Bridge can still be seen today if you search them out in the woods and the bridge spanning the Nene survives today, albeit having been rebuilt and upgraded several times since the 1845 original.
