Midweek Running – Weds 30 August

We are running our midweek passenger service on Wednesday 30th August with one steam locomotive and our diesel railcar in service.

Why not enjoy a journey (or travel all day) through the Leicestershire countryside behind a beautifully restored historic steam locomotive or enjoy the picturesque views from our restored diesel railcar. 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.

Please note - we're running a special timetable on Wednesday 30th August - Click here for details.

We look forward to seeing you.
