Come and get a slice of the action when the NVR serves up its first Pizza Train on the evening of 16 June.


Food will be served prior to both of the departures from Wansford so you have the choice of eating at either one of the two sittings but still enjoying the option of two round trips of our line as your table will be reserved*
(parties fewer than four may be seated with other guests for the whole evening*)

There are four choices of pizza available (Click here to see menu) including vegetarian and all can be served gluten free for a supplement of £1 each. All pizzas will be 9” with a side portion of chips. Riva Pizza pride themselves on the quality of their ingredients and have featured at many local food and ale festivals.

Trains will depart from our Wansford Station at 18.45 (so please arrive by 18.30 to allow your Pizzas to be cooked fresh) and again at 20.15 (last arrivals at 20.00)

To accommodate any guests staying at Ferry Meadows Camp Site our train will stop at our Overton (for Ferry Meadows) station at 19.35 to pick you up and return you there at 21.05. Due to timings you will only be able to have one round trip.

The train will be hauled by our class 31 mainline diesel which saw many years in service at March depot and any Dads being brought along for an early Fathers Day treat may well remember the sight and sounds of heritage Brush diesels.

Our licensed on-train bar will be open throughout the journeys.

Please call our office to make a reservation on 01780 78444.
