Great Central Railway
Voted number 12 on the list of the 50 greatest railway journeys in the world the Great Central Railway is the UK's only double track, main line heritage railway. Itâ€™s the only place in the world where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other â€“ just as it was when steam ruled the rails.
Trains run every weekend of the year, bank holidays and daily in the summer. In addition, First Class Restaurant Car Services provide 4 or 6 course meals, whilst travelling between Loughborough and Leicester or childhood dreams can come true with a Drive a Train Experience. We also run a number of family events, including â€œDays Out with Thomas the Tank Engineâ€, Bonfire Night and Santa Specials.
The railway has won a number of awards including â€œindependent railway of the yearâ€, and a gold award for the East Midlands best visitor experience and is a quality assured visitor attraction as designated by Enjoy England.
