Union of South Africa Steam Train Journey
We board our train behind the magnificent locomotive Union of South Africa for a picturesque, steam hauled round trip journey on the Nene Valley Railway from Wansford to Peterborough. With a journey time of approximately 75 minutes, we’ll travel along the beautiful Nene Valley, through a picturesque landscape of water meadows, arable farmland and a country park. The railway has featured in many films and TV series including the James Bond films Octopussy and Goldeneye.
