Midweek Running – Tues 15 to Thurs 24 August (Tues, Weds, Thurs only)

We are running an all-steam midweek passenger service on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 15th to 24th August.

Why not enjoy a journey (or travel all day) through the Leicestershire countryside behind a beautifully restored historic steam locomotive. There's a café at each station to enjoy a meal, and the Griddle Car service serves a selection of meals including our famous all-day breakfast on the move.

We look forward to seeing you.

Our next running day

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
We are running passenger trains on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week.

Due to the recent very hot and dry conditions, and the resulting risk of lineside fires, we will be operating an all-diesel service on Thursday.
