This will be an opportunity to enjoy both the GCR main line and the Mountsorrel Branch, with diesel railcar services calling at Quorn & Woodhouse, Nunckley Hill, Mountsorrel, and Rothley before returning to Quorn & Woodhouse.

There will be four services serving the Branch on both days, with a regular passenger service in operation on our main line.

Tickets will be available for a single journey on the Mountsorrel Branch, and also a combined ticket providing unlimited travel on the GCR main line and one trip on the Branch during the day.

Passengers are able to board and leave the train at both Mountsorrel and Nunckley Hill stations as well as the GCR main line stations

N.B. Visitors with dogs are not allowed to board or leave the train at the heritage centre site. The heritage centre site is a dog free zone.



Tickets for the event are available to purchase online, either in the form of a single round trip on the branch (£6 for adults), or a combined ticket providing a single trip on the branch and unlimited travel on the GCR main line on the day.



The timetable for main line and branch running is available to download:



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.
