Nene Valley Railway: Peterborough Nene Valley Station (2)
The red and white buffers in the distance mark the end of the Nene Valley Railway, viewed from the eastern end of the station platform. This was the route of the former London & North Western Railway's Northampton to Peterborough line, opened in 1845, with an end on junction, more or less where the buffers are now, with the former Great Eastern Railway's line from Peterborough to March. Peterborough East station, which existed from 1845 to 1966, was on the Great Eastern line a short distance beyond the overbridge, which carried the former Great Northern Railway's main line to the north over the River Nene.
