Driving along the A1M while returning South from Yorkshire we called in for a lunch break. We were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of snacks, cleanliness and friendly service. An added bonus was watching a steam train while enjoying our food.

We had a voucher to use up and chose Nene Valley railway because it was convenient and nearest to home. It was a case of use it or lose it. Anything else would have meant the added expense of a weekend away and only compounded...More

Thank-you for your very kind comments. Sadly the current dry spell means we can't have a steamer out, although it feels rather churlish hoping for rain!

Hello... We are really glad that you enjoyed your day at the NVR.. While Railworld is situated right next door to our Peterborough terminus it is a completely different organisation. We do however, work together on some things so I will pass on your comments.
