Review by Kevin Day
Wonderful day at the railway, with two steam trains running. Staff were helpful and lovely.
23 August 2019
Go back in time to the golden age of steam locomotion to the UK’s only double track, main line heritage railway.
Enjoy a day’s unlimited travel on the award-winning Great Central Railway. The only place in the world where full-size steam engines pass each other. Board at any of the railway’s stations, and take some time to visit the museum, restored station buildings and gift shop. Set a date for the 12th greatest railway journey in the world.
The round trip takes about 1 hour 30 minutes but you will enjoy unlimited travel throughout the day so feel free to take your time and hop on and off as often as you like.
On the day of your visit you will be able to board a train at any of the four stations on The Great Central Railway and enjoy unlimited travel for the whole day. Take some time to visit the museum, restored station buildings and gifts shop and discover the history of this fascinating stretch of heritage railway.
