60008 1953-07-15 Peterborough North

No 60008 Dwight D Eisenhower has a northbound semi-fast about to leave Peterborough on 15th July 1953. The A4 still has in place the long guard irons which would be removed a year later.

A V2 simmers in the yard and the attractive Peterborough North Signal box which had an excellent view of the station platforms can also be seen. Spotters very much in evidence here are missing out on a southbound departure as witnessed by the black smoke above the station.
