Mail By Rail

The Night Mail Project is an exciting new addition to the railway, to be constructed at Ferry Meadows. The museum will exhibit the railway’s extensive collection of Traveling Post Office and Wagon-Lits rolling stock as well as memorabilia owned by Nene Valley Railway. The museum is still in the design stages, although the site has been cleared and track work has been assembled.

The Wagon-Lits to be displayed in the Rail Mail museum are supported by the IRPS (International Railway Preservation Society), a new group rapidly gaining members and support to help fund and restore WL Sleeping Car 3916 and WL restaurant car 2975.

Initial restoration work is concentrating on WL 3916 prior to restoration work.

Despite only being active for less than a year, substantial funds have already been raised to help restore the roof, preventing further deterioration.

The railway currently owns 9 TPO coaches, 5 new style Mark 1s, an LMS TPO (M30272M, the only surviving coach from the great train robbery), 1 Southern Railway TPO (4920), 1 LMS Full Brake (30976) and a Great Northern TPO (2178, body only).
