The railway once complete will run with a mixture of scale Steam and Battery Locomotive

The project which is in the early stages in currently fund raising to purchase much needed sleepers to relay our track, and other items, many of the NVR members own locomotives and these will feature on the railway

Since the start of the project in August 2019, we have gained over 200 yards of alloy rail, a passenger carrying carriage, scale signals, buffer stops, and other items

September 2020 update 

Our east end station is nearing completion in the next few weeks both platform will be finished and the final touches to the turntable. Our second open day was a great success with visiting locomotives and the home fleet. The project now has taken delivery of another passenger carriage providing a rake of two Mk1 style coaches. Our running line retaining fence has been completed. The west end station is now starting to take shape with the level crossing gate not in position and retaining fence, the new track layout is also taking shape.
