NLR Memberships

Northampton & Lamport Railway Memberships

Joining The Northampton and Lamport Railway Charitable Incorporated Organisation (NLRCIO) is a great way of supporting your local heritage railway. We offer our members many benefits as well as the chance of becoming a volunteer working member and helping us rebuild the line and getting involved in operating the railways services throughout the year.


Online Membership Applications

Our online system for memberships is via our ‘Peoples Fundraising’ pages. Its the quickest and simplest way to apply for membership or to renew a current membership when it expires. Gift Aid can also be added this way, if making a donation on top of your membership fee.

Membership Benefits

By becoming a member of NLRCIO you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Privilege rate fares — Currently 50% off the published fares (for the members themselves only & provided by the operating company Northampton Steam Railway Limited). — Note: Privilege rate fares are not available/valid at Special Events.
  • Copies of the “Premier Line” magazine (one copy, of each new issue, per membership).
  • Member only Special Offers in the Shop on the platform — Special offers are available on specific dates or for limited time periods only.
  • The opportunity to become a Volunteer Working Member, which includes further benefits.

Gift Aid

Please consider using Gift Aid when making a donation, as it means The Northampton and Lamport Railway CIO can recover a sum equal to the basic rate of income tax you paid, thus helping your donation go further.

Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing!

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must equal or exceed the amount the charity will claim in the tax year. If you are a higher rate tax payer you will also be able to claim a tax relief through your tax return.
