Remembrance Sunday 10th November

We remember those who paid the ultimate price for their country with a special service of remembrance .

It starts at 10.45am on the platform at Loughborough Central station and concludes with a two minute silence at 11 am.

To mark this special day GCR are putting out an extra steam loco which will be in place of the 11am diesel service, running 5 minutes later than the advertised time from Loughborough. Otherwise, normal timetable and fares apply.

We hope you will choose to join us for the ceremony.

The service will be conducted by Army Chaplain Mike Sedgely.

Two extra reasons to come to the railway on the day:

1. We are planning to run an all steam service with three locos.

2. Loco shed tours available as well. Details:
