Tag: East Coast Mainline

Photo also used by East Coast Trains on Facebook!

Tallington ECML (East Coast trains)The list of people that have used my photos, just keeps on growing…

East Coast Trains have also used the photo on there facebook page. Which can be found at www.facebook.com/eastcoastuk.

Best they are very glad I took the photo. It shows everyone just now bad it was. And why Network Rail had to close the ECML between Peterborough and Grantham for most of yesterday afternoon and well into the evening.

I believe even some 24 hours later. Only 3 of the 4 lines are fully open. The one remaining line (the fast line towards London) is open but only for use by diesel trains.

I do feel very sorry for East Coast Trains, this happens way to often on the ECML. Network Rail, do really need to sort it out!

My Tallington ECML photo made the local press!

So happy. Now one of the local news papers, has used on of my photos. I took yesterday at Tallington of the downed overhead on the ECML. Below is the photo the Peterborough Telegraph used.

My now famous Tallington ECML photos

Below are my now famous Tallington ECML photos. When I heard that overhead lines had come down at Tallington. I of course had to cycle down and get some photos!

I had no idea at the time. When I posted them on twitter that both East Coast Trains (35,644 followers) and National Rail (144,390 followers) would retweet one of the photos. Which in turn, got lots of others also retweeting the photo!

I have now, lost count of how many people, that must have seen the photo!
