Northampton & Lamport Railway 12th May 2013
The 47395 Running at the Northampton & LamportRailway on 19th May 2013

The line between Northampton and Market Harborough finally closed on 16 August 1981, the intermediate stations on the route having been closed for many years. In 1984 a group was formed with the intention of opening a section of the line as a heritage railway. The site opened to the public shortly afterwards. Following the granting of a Light Railway Order, the line carried its first fare-paying passengers in November 1995. The official Grand Opening Ceremony took place on 31 March 1996. Currently, passenger trains operate on a section of line approximately 112 miles (2.4 km) in length, departing from and arriving at the only station, Pitsford and Brampton. An extension south is under construction which will add another 12 miles (0.80 km) mile of running line, with around 90% of tracklaying completed as of January 2012. When complete it will include a station with sidings and run-round loop at the former Boughton Crossing on the A5199.
