Peterborough (Nene Valley) Station

Peterborough Nene Valley Station is the next station on the list for a replacement building as soon as funds allow! In the meantime, NVR train tickets and coffee/tea and ices etc. are available at Railworld Wildlife Haven. This station is the eastern terminus of the Nene Valley Railway, and our gateway to the historic city centre with its large 12th century Norman Cathedral, old-fashioned arcades, bustling streets and modern malls.

At the western end of the station is the signalbox which was relocated from Welland Bridge in Spalding. Although it is not yet commissioned, it will give a commanding view over the station. The frame inside was originally from Grassmore Junction in March, while the starter signal originates from French Drove in Lincolnshire.
The station has a main arrivals and departures platform (Platform 1) and a small bay platform (Platform 2). In the bay you will find a selection of goods wagons which form part of our freight set and can be seen running on special events. A small but dedicated team restores these vehicles with minimal facilities. From the platforms you can see the current East Coast Mainline as it passes over the Nene Bridges just south of Peterborough's mainline station. This is not far from our mainline connection at Fletton Junction. The area surrounding the station was once the site of the London and North Western Railway's Woodston Locomotive Works, and is now the home of Railworld Wildlife Haven.
