NVR Wansford Peterborough Cambridgeshire 22nd August 2021

NVR Wansford Peterborough Cambridgeshire 22nd August 2021
A grey day made brighter by the platform floral display at Wansford station. The old station building on platform three was built by the Northampton and Peterborough Railway in 1844/5 for the opening of the line in a Jacobean style with ornate stone masonry. It was finally purchased by the Nene Valley Railway in 2015 but still needs a lot of work.

1958-vintage Swedish Railcar Y7 No 1212 in original orange and yellow livery looks a bit out of place but the line has built up quite a collection of continental rolling stock

A colourful display, the building certainly needs a lot of work, would the railcar have been the same gauge or has it been adapted

Thanks Peter. The railcar is the same track gauge - 4ft 81/2in - but the loading gauge is wider. The Nene Valley have made sure that their platform clearances, etc are Continental rather than British so the rolling stock like this can work on the line.

The floral foreground and railcar certainly add a splash of colour. Have a great weekend.
