Loughborough Central Station,
Great Central Road,
LE11 1RW


We have some of the most renowned Galas - both steam and diesel - of any heritage railway in the world. With a hugely impressive home fleet, we also have guest locos at these events.

From our Railways at Work Weekend (which this year is celebrating its 2nd year on our events timetable and showcases how railways moved freight around the country, becoming a lifeline to towns and villages before the age of the motor vehicle) to our annual Autumn and Winter Galas, to all the mini-Galas in between...we have something to suit the tastes of all our loyal enthusiasts and all new visitors to our heritage line.
