Model Railway Group

In 1997 the Series 'London's Burning' was Filmed at the railway, and an ex BR Mk2e FO Intercity coach was used for a fire, after everything had been burnt it was in no state to restore it into a passenger coach. In 1998 the Nene Valley Model Railway Group was formed. The layout is in OO Gauge with a small loop of OO9 Narrow Gauge at one end and can be found on platform 4 in the first coach. It took around 4 years to bring it up to a 'scenic presentable standard'. The Model Railway is still being improved and there is still allot of scenic work to be done on the layout, although about 99% of the layout is complete, when you take into consideration that some of the buildings, ballast and grass is around 10- 14 years old, and so all of this needs to be improved. Also we often need to replace points and point motors. Like most departments we welcome donations as they go a long way in helping to maintain improve the layout. The Model Railway is open most weekends depending on availability, if you have any questions about the Model Railway, or would like to know when it will be open, or if you are interested in becoming a member (we are looking for keen members who can help up run the layout, full training will be given) then all you need to do is become a working member of Nene Valley Railway and message 'ashley.74@live.co.uk' or speak to one of the members at the Model Railway.
