We're nearly there! Please support us today and help this long-held dream become a reality really soon.
The Northampton & Lamport Railway (NLR) is a steam and heritage
diesel tourist railway in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside.
Located just 5 miles north of Northampton, we currently have
approximately 1½ miles of running track along the old Northampton to
Market Harborough line. This route is now the Brampton Valley Way (a
14-mile linear park) so you can not only ride one of our trains along
the former line, but also walk along and watch the steam and diesel
engines in action.
First established in 1984, we are run purely by volunteers and have been operating train services since 1995. We are currently working to complete our ½ mile southern extension to Boughton, before then pushing north a further 1½ miles to Spratton.
