Peterborough Nene Valley Station is the eastern terminus of the Nene Valley Railway.
The area surrounding the station was once the site of the London and North Western Railway's Woodston Locomotive Works.
Today it is the gateway to the historic city with its large 12th century Norman Cathedral, old-fashioned arcades, bustling streets and modern malls.
In the bay platform (Platform 2) you will find a selection of goods wagons which form part of our freight set and can been seen running on special events. A small but dedicated team restores these vehicles with minimal facilities.
Behind the station, Railworld offers old and new exhibits as well as information about railways all over the world. Its theme of sustainable transport spells out the need to cut global emissions of CO2 and explains how this is being achieved today. A separate admission charge is payable on entering.
The station comprises of a main arrivals and departures platform (Platform 1) and a small bay platform (Platform 2). The bay platform is used to store freight wagons except on special events where trains also arrive and depart from here.
Various displays detailing the history of the railway buildings that used to occupy the site before the station was built in the 1980s can been seen on the walls of the waiting area.
At the western end is the signalbox which was relocated from Welland Bridge in Spalding. Although it is not yet commissioned, it gives a commanding view over the station. The frame inside was originally from Grassmore Junction in March while the starter signal originates from French Drove in Lincolnshire.
