Step back in time as you climb aboard a heritage steam or diesel train.  Relax in our restored wooden panelled coaches or compartments and be taken back to the heyday of the golden age of steam.

Our line travels through our tunnel, built in 1845, to our country station at Yarwell on the Northamptonshire border. Use the train as a base to explore our stations at Wansford, Overton (For Ferry Meadows) with its country park, Orton Mere and its riverside walks and lakes, and our station in Peterborough where you can take time to explore the Cathedral, resting place of Katherine of Aragon and former resting place of Mary Queen of Scots, which dates back to 654 AD
