A fast freight passing through Peterborough North on the East Coast Mainline on 16th August 1958. The freight is headed by A1 Pacific #60158 “Aberdonian” and is overtaking a Down Empties for New England Yard (with O2 2-8-0 No. 63934) which is being held at the signal while a Diesel multiple-unit runs into the station to its right. The lines to the right were the separate ex-Midland lines to Manton, Melton Mowbray, Leicester etc.
