City of Peterborough (locomotive)

The "City of Peterborough".

The British Railways (BR) Standard Class 5 No. 73050 "City of Peterborough" is a type of 4-6-0, steam locomotive built in 1954 by the Derby Locomotive Works.

The name it now has was given to the fast and reliable post-service that it originally serviced.

As of today, it now currently carries passengers and special freight trains at the Nene Valley Railway.


This engine was also featured in many films. Such as: "The Mystery of the Blue Train", "Murder on the Orient Express" and its wheels make a brief appearance in "Hugo".

It is often dressed as a cartoon character with no respect to the engine's historical value as is.
