Midweek Running – Tues 18 to Thurs 20 July

We are running an all-steam midweek passenger service on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 18th to 20th July!

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.
