Regular steam trains operate over the line to Peterborough, a return trip of 15 miles. Many steam locomotives are kept on this line including both British and continental types. The railway has featured in many television series including London's Burning and breath-taking stunts in the James Bond films Octopussy and Goldeneye. Nene Valley Railway is the home of Thomas, the childrens favourite engine who was named by the Reverend Awdry in 1971. Thomas events are held throughout the season.
