Welcome to the Northampton & Lamport Railway

11435_197597346334_1967175_nThe Northampton & Lamport Railway is a steam and heritage diesel tourist railway in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, located just 5 miles from Northampton we are in easy reach of the motorway network.
With approximately 1½ miles of running track alongside the Brampton Valley Way, a 14 mile linear park from Northampton to Market Harborough, you can not only ride one of our trains along the former line but walk along and watch the steam and diesel engines in action.

At Pitsford and Brampton station you can buy one of our Day Rovers tickets* (on selected services) and ride all the trains all day, sit watch the world over a cup of tea at the Platform 3 Buffet and visit the gift shop or our second hand bookshop – the Emporium.  All staffed by our dedicated team of volunteers who work hard in bringing history back to life.


*Only selected services. Look out for the Pay Once Ride All Day Tickets on the event pages for this offer.

Northampton and Lamport Railway is open Sundays and our operating season runs March to October offering a wide range of events using both steam and diesel engines; check out our event pages for more details.

Please note: We regret that we are unable to offer wheelchair access on our trains. This is temporary while we refurbish our wheelchair accessible coach. The Northampton & Lamport Railway apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
