What's on today - Fri 10th Apr 2020

No trains running today. What's coming next?

We know that we cannot celebrate the Easter Holidays with you due to the current restrictions. So why not spend some time with the family with our Great Virtual Easter Egg Hunt. Download our hunt sheet click here follow the clues to our web pages to locate the eggs, collect the numbers and enter the draw to win a family ticket for when re start to run trains again. The NVR is a registered charity and without operating this would have a substantial impact on its future. Please help by donating to give the railway a fighting chance to be able to ‘steam on’ in its current form once the pandemic is over,  why not treat yourself to a virtual coffee and treat the NVR ☕️☕️ Donate Here:

In light of the government briefing today we have now made the decision to close the railway to all but essential work. This means that there will be no passenger trains, shops or café facilities and our stations will be closed to the public until further notice. If you've pre-booked any events in March and April we will contact you but please bear with us for a reply as it’s a very busy time for the admin team.

The NVR is a registered charity and without operating this will  have a substantial impact on its future. Please help by donating to the NVR to secure our future.  

We will continue to update you via our Website and Social Media pages as the situation develops.
