Nene Valley Railway

What's on today - Thu 18th Aug 2022

It is with great sadness that I have to share the passing of the Nene Valley Railway’s Vice President Charles Swift OBE. 

Charles sat on Peterborough City Council for more than 60 years and served as the youngest ever Mayor of Peterborough. He was also a railwayman starting his career working on steam at New England.  

Charles was influential in supporting the foundation of the NVR and remained a great friend of the railway, more latterly in his role of Vice President. 

Our condolences go to Charles’ family and many friends. 

Mike Kerfoot - Chairman 

Due to a recent lineside fire and on-going dry conditions we have made the decision to replace scheduled Steam services with Heritage diesel hauled services. The situation will be constantly reviewed and updates on scheduled locomotives will be available in our Loco Roster section.
