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.

Stumbled across this delightful little cage at the station after cycling from Market Harborough. Food was lovely and the staff very accomodating.

This is an interesting Railway project, somewhat at the early stages of its journey. The volunteers are doing a great job but they really need some injection of substantial funds. We picked up a leaflet about this place from one of those supermarket type racks, the reality wasn't quite as good as the expectation. A very slow train ride to... More

One of my local Heritage Railways, see they are doing their best to make the line longer, which is a great thing, and good on them. Always worth a visit, even if you just take a walk along the footpath which is to the side of the line.

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.

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
