The Great Central Railway

The Great Central Railway is Britain's only double track main line heritage railway. The stations of this railway are restored to different periods of the main line's history.

Loughborough reflects the end of the era, the 1960s. Quorn and Woodhouse played a significant part in the embarkation of troops for the D-Day campaign of the Second World War, and so reflects the 1940s. Rothley is the oldest period, restored to the gas lit Edwardian era of the turn of the last century.

Reconstruction events, complete with costumed actors, vintage cars and buses bring to life the days when the railway was the heart of the community. Period and Themed Galas reflext the different eras of the 100 year history of the Great Central Railway.
