Special Services

The Great Central Railway is much more than a heritage railway. It is able to provide services to commercial and corporate clients in a variety of areas.

The double track line, approved for running at 60 mph with steam traction and 75 mph for diesel traction, is the ideal venue for vehicle testing and staff training.

The whole railway is suitable for training purposes in a wide variety of railway related activities.

With its period atmosphere it is an ideal venue for filming for both educational and entertainment use.

Off the railway Lovatt House provides the ideal location for training, conferences and entertainment for commercial and corporate clients.
