Northampton and Lamport Railway

The Northampton & Lamport Railway is a steam and heritage diesel tourist railway in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, located just 5 miles north of Northampton.

With approximately 1½ miles of running track alongside the Brampton Valley Way (a 14-mile linear park from Northampton to Market Harborough) you can not only ride one of our trains along the former line but also walk along and watch the steam and diesel engines in action.

At Pitsford and Brampton station you can buy one of our Day Rovers tickets* (on selected services) and ride all the trains all day, sit watch the world over a cup of tea at the Platform 3 Buffet and visit the gift shop or our second-hand bookshop – the Emporium.

All staffed by our dedicated team of volunteers who work hard in bringing history back to life.
We are open Sundays and our operating season runs March to October offering a wide range of events using both steam and diesel engines. We also operate Santa Specials at weekends in the run up to Christmas (booking essential for these).

Trains tend to run from 11am until 4pm.

Check out our website for more details, online discounted ticket purchases, etc.

If you would like to volunteer, or help the railway in any way, please do get in touch or come along and speak to one of our friendly
