Steam Train

The Great Central Railway is the UK's only double
track, main line heritage railway. It’s the only place in the world
where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other – just
as it was when steam ruled the rails. Trains run every weekend of the
year, bank holidays and selected week days through the summer. In
addition, First Class Restaurant Car Services provide 5 course meals,
whilst travelling between Loughborough and Leicester. For a very
special night out, step aboard the Great Central Pullman and return
to an age of luxury and glamour, the quintessential orient express
experience. The railway has won a number of awards including
“independent railway of the year”, a gold award for the East
Midlands best visitor experience and is a quality assured visitor
attraction as designated by Enjoy England.
