Map showing proposed shed location
Since the Northampton & Lamport Railway (N-LR) 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 complete the construction of the shed as soon as possible.The shed will be of a modest size at 65 feet in length covering a single road, to allow two locomotives to be under cover. The shed design allows for future expansion as and when finances & volunteer labour allow. The shed design caters for the incorporation of some of the windows recovered from the old Bedford Midland shed.
Foundations £1,000 – Completed January/February 2018
Steel Frame £4,000 – Completed February 2018
The N-LR is grateful to the following funders of the Loco Shed Project:
