Steam trains, exhibits and weird and wonderful outfits all made it another Steampunk to remember at Nene Valley Railway over the weekend.
Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that has a historical setting and typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. This year’s event was the fourth Steampunk weekend to be held at Nene Valley Railway, whose marketing manager Jerry Thurston said: “It was really, really well received. It gets bigger every year, which is quite exciting. It’s going to be a fixture for Nene Valley. It was a massive effort by the staff and volunteers.” Three-quarters of the tickets to travel on the Flying Scotsman on September 28, 29 and 30 have been sold, Jerry added.
