Small but friendly railway with knowledgeable staff and volunteers. A Heritage railway not far from Peterborough with the real "Thomas" and a selection of old locomotives that are still in steam or desiel. Well worth a trip for children and enthusiasts alike

Had a great day out on the Nene Valley Railway, the steam engine was exchanged for a diesel but we did not mind. A steam engine was being tested in Wansford so we watched that instead. Lunch was good value in the station café too.
