Steaming away from Orton Mere station
Steaming away from Orton Mere station
The winter evening sunshine reflects off the steam emitted by a London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 hauling a passenger train which has just departed from Orton Mere station en route for Wansford on the Nene Valley Railway (NVR).
The NVR was opened by the Peterborough Railway Society (PRS) in 1974. It began operating passenger services in June 1977 and now ranks as one of the United Kingdom's leading heritage railways. The seven-and-a-half-mile route runs between Peterborough Nene Valley and Yarwell Junction. The NVR is a popular venue for location filming and has appeared in the James Bond movies "Octopussy" and "GoldenEye" and the BBC television drama series "Secret Army" and "Casualty" amongst others.
