A lovely little find. Only open on Sundays but they were happy for us to look round and chat on Monday, even saw them shunting trains. A quaint bit of England in the past.

I went with little expectation as I knew this was a small volunteer run railway. Unfortunately there just isn't enough here to keep me interested and this was branch line weekend! I know its all volunteers I I commend them for there efforts.The train ride was one of the strangest I have been on (and I have been on many!).... More

Went on father's day as a bit of a treat. The staff (volunteers) make this all worthwhile. I will never cease to be amazed at their enthusiaism and effort.

Stayed at Sedgebrook Hall for the weekend and found this place by accident ! We got there just in time to buy a platform ticket and watch the train go off on its journey ! It was a blast from the past. We had a mug of tea in a carriage at the station it was great. There was a... More

We decided to visit the Northampton and Lamport railway. It cost us just over £17 for 4 of us. For a 10 minute mini train drive for this price . 2 mins drive up the track and a 3.5 min drive the other way a few times. This is more like a scrape yard. We made the most of a... More

Good visit on a steam day. Seemed a bit low on volunteers and full credit to the hard work of those who were doing a great job. Just like the real railway there were delays, this time because of "the wrong sort of coal" which prevented them getting up steam in time. We were in no hurry and visited their... More

We visited the NLR on a bank holiday. They had a teddy bear special and any child with a teddy got to travel for free. The tickets are reasonably priced as adults are only £4.90 and you can travel as many times as you like (they charge £3.90 for children on normal days). The track is short and you go... More
