The Northampton & Lamport Railway are running Mutual Improvement Classes in order to pass on and preserve the skills of the steam locomotive engineman. In true MIC tradition, these pages are designed to make this knowledge and information available to all.

Just click on the subject of your choice for further information. Items not highlighted are still under development.
