What's on today - Fri 5th Jun 2020

In line with government guidelines the railway is currently closed until further notice.


WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please watch our Appeal Video. The NVR is a registered charity and being unable to operate will 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 Click here for our Appeal Video   Click here to purchase our Gift Vouchers

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions 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 until the end of June we will contact you but please bear with us for a reply as it’s a very busy time for the admin team.

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