Make your childhood dreams come true by driving a steam locomotive train, or sit back and travel in comfort.
You’ll be travelling at 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.
The Great Central Railway is the UK’s only double track, main line heritage railway with trains running every weekend of the year, during bank holidays and selected week days throughout the summer. Also, if you fancy treating yourself, First Class Restaurant Car Services offer five course meals whilst travelling between Loughborough and Leicester.
Step aboard the Great Central Pullman and return to an age of luxury and glamour for a special night out, and experience the quintessential Orient Express experience.
Make childhood dreams can come true with the Drive a Locomotive Experience, where you can take the regulator on a mighty steam locomotive.
