Great Central Railway - Timetable & Events

View the days out leaflet for Great Central Railway - Timetable & Events

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 five 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. Childhood dreams can come true with a Drive a Locomotive Experience when you can take the regulator on a mighty steam locomotive or notch up on a powerful diesel.

We also run many special events, including steam galas, Peppa Pig, Meet Moshi Monsters, a Bonfire Night, a Wartime Weekend and Santa Specials.
