The restored Mountsorrel Railway passes through the Heritage site and a new station has been created to allow visitors to ride a heritage train along the branch line. With interesting twists and turns of the railway there is much to see from the carriage window. The return trip behind a steam train or heritage diesel takes about 25 minutes. You can board or leave the train at Mountsorrel Station to visit the nearby Stonehurst Family Farm and Motor Museum. In the future it is hoped to build a third station at the Swithland end of the line to allow passengers to visit a picnic area and to watch the trains pass on the Great Central Railway main line.
On selected days each year trains will run from the Mountsorrel Railway onto the GCR main line, allowing visitors to ride from Mountsorrel Station, or the Heritage Centre, to Leicester or Loughborough.
