More about the Nicky Railway Line
The Nicky Line was created as a branch rail link between Hemel Hempstead and Harpenden, with the purpose of linking Hemel with Luton to support the straw plait trade. It opened on 16th July 1877 and the last passenger train ran on 16th June 1947. The route has been transformed into National Cycle route 57, and can be accessed at multiple points.
