RIDE THE “MAHARAJA EXPRESS” AT THE GREAT CENTRAL RAILWAY IN ASSOCIATION WITH SALIMS RESTAURANT

It’s not a takeaway its a takeover! Salim’s Indian Restaurant staff will swap their stationary kitchen for a galley on the move as they bring some Eastern flavour to the Great Central Railway. Guests will be greeted in full Indian costume and treated to traditional music. The train has been grandly titled the Maharaja express and will run for the umpteenth time - book early, it's a sell out success!

Your five course dinner is served aboard our First Class Restaurant Cars as one of our historic main line steam locomotives takes you on a leisurely journey through the Leicestershire countryside.  The train departs from Loughborough Central at 7.30 p.m, returning at approximately 10.00 p.m. There will be an interlude at the delightfully atmospheric Rothley station complete with original Edwardian gas lights.
