Emergency Appeal – November 2020

The Great Central Railway continues to fight hard in navigating these hard times brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We urgently need funds to help us through to the Spring of 2021 to ensure we maintain our exceptionally high standards and continue to offer the true heritage mainline experience. Please give generously. Thank you


Please donate to our Emergency Appeal. All donations are most gratefully received. Thank you.



This appeal is administered by The David Clarke Railway Trust (Registered Charity 1104839) - The supporting charity of the Great Central Railway


Our next running day

Due to the new national lockdown from 5th November 2020, our train services are currently suspended.

Customers who have booked for services between 5th November and 2nd December are being contacted regarding their booking.

Our Santa and Winter Wonderlights trains after 2nd December are currently unaffected and expected to go ahead as planned.
