By 1976, the NVR was hitting the front pages.

Here, 73050 poses at Wansford Station. At that time there was only one coach available. Note also that she is only part-lined, and the tender is plain black with no emblem.


With the original City of Peterborough nameplate but missing cylinder covers and part of the upswept running plate, the part-painted loco glistens in the sunlight. Cab access looks a bit precarious - what would current H&S think about this.

The bare ground in the foreground is the site of the 1990s New Station Building.


On the same day, about 20 people are queueing for a look inside the cab.

Even the neighbours have come to see what’s going on.
