Great Central Railway

Boasting the title of being the United Kingdom's only double track and main line heritage railway, this wonderfully maintained and nostalgic line was first opened in 1847, under the name of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway. In 1897, an extension to London Marylebone was planned, and it was renamed the Great Central Railway.

The line still runs passenger services today, but it also runs as an attraction, featuring steam and diesel locomotives hauling vintage carriages that have been meticulously restored. Some of the restored carriages feature dining carts, and comfortable saloons, perfect for relaxing in as you wind through the varied Leicester countryside, passing excellent stations that take passengers back in time to distinct eras of railway history - from the Edwardian era, to World War Two, through postwar Britain, and ending in the 1960's.
