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 the Railworld Wildlife Haven temporary structure. It 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 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 comprises of 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 been seen running on special events. A small but dedicated team restores these vehicles with minimal facilities.
The area surrounding the station was once the site of the London and North Western Railway's Woodston Locomotive Works: volunteers have excavated the turntable and other artefacts are on show. You are welcome to wander around this area where toilets are available and small exhibitions – All free for NVR Ticket holders. Plus you also have the opportunity to view restoration of the 140 tonne Danish Pacific under restoration by the International Railway Preservation Society – Based at NVR’s Overton Station.
