    We did the 3/4 mile relay and more besides, but with a bit of help from some new faces. Always good to see.

    If you fancy joining us, not just on the PWay, we would like to meet you.
    The NYMR is holding another Volunteer day on Sunday 14th April at Pickering.
    Reps from each department will be on hand to talk to you and answer any questions you may have about each dept.

    This Sunday (28th April) is the Northampton and Lamport Railway New Volunteers Open Day. Its also 'Kids for a Quid' day, so why not bring the whole family! Trains running hourly from 11am to 4pm

    We're always of any new volunteers. Why not come and see about joining the friendly team at our growing railway? Many opportunities available in all areas.

    For more information, please check our website here: https://www.nlr.org.uk/

    Can't make this Sunday? No problem! Simply either:

    Thanks :)

    This film (filmed pre-lockdown but released just now) shows what life is like as a loco department volunteer on the Bluebell Railway.

    Very good but it doesn’t warn about having to listen to Ian Wrights jokes!
