The Nene Valley Railway
The Nene Valley Railway runs from Peterborough to Wansford railway station and then on to Yarwell junction. Wansford Station is on part of the old A1 at Stibbingson and is about 2 miles from the village of Wansford itself. The railway line is about 7 1/2 miles long. Trains run at weekends for most of the year.
The station at Wansford railway station is open from around 9am to 4.30 on most days. (check on there web site for times) The line runs trains from this country and also from abroad. As well as steam locomotives it also has main line and industrial diesels. It has wagons and coaches and a large collection of railway bits and bobs. At the Peterborough end of the NVR is the Rail World Museum which is next to the Nene Valley Railways Peterborough station.
