The N&LR needs YOU!

Welcome to the Northampton & Lamport Railway

 The 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 within 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.

 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.

 Our station site is also open for viewing only (no trains running) each Wednesday and also every non-running-day Saturday. These are our days when our volunteers perform maintenance and refurbishment work so you may find areas cordoned off for safety purposes. The volunteers will be only too willing to answer your questions but please take guidance if they ask you to ‘stand clear’ when they are working with mechanical equipment.

Loco Shed Appeal

Since the Northampton & Lamport Railway started running trains in 1996, the locomotives have been stored outside bringing the associated deterioration and security issues. The time has now come where the railway needs to construct undercover secure storage.

An appeal has been launched to raise the £12,000 needed to make this project a reality. After receiving a very competitive quote for the steel frame, the volunteers have a desire to start the construction as soon as possible.

Raised so far...
