Our next running day

Passenger trains have now returned to the GCR, running every Saturday and Sunday, and on selected weekdays.

Pre-booking is required at present, to ensure social distancing onboard trains.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the railway as we progressively return to normal operation, as the national situation improves.
