Remembrance Sunday – 12th November

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

The service begins 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 a steam loco will haul the 11am service from Loughborough (usually diesel-hauled), 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 the staff of Great Central Railway and will include a hymn, a poem and a bugle player.

An all-steam service will operate on Remembrance Sunday with three locomotives in steam.

Locomotive shed tours are also available.

All locomotives and attractions appear subject to availability. Great Central Railway reserves the right to amend or cancel any service.
