The Great Central Railway (Nottingham) offers over 10 miles of heritage railway running through the beautiful scenery of South Nottinghamshire and North-West Leicestershire. Journeys begin at Ruddington, just south of Nottingham, and continue through to East Leake and Loughborough. Our facilities at Ruddington include a Model Railway, Miniature Railways, a Heritage Transport Collection and railway workshop with full engineering facilities, as well as a cafeteria and gift shop. There’s plenty to see and do at our Ruddington base, so we aren’t just a train ride – be sure to make time to see all our attractions and facilities. Services are pulled by heritage Steam and Diesel locomotives, re-creating the experience of train travel from a time when it was more than just a means to get from one place to another. The Great Central Railway (Nottingham) is a great experience for all the family. Come and enjoy a day with us!
