Mountsorrel Railway

The Railway Opening weekend was a phenomenal success with over 1000 visitors enjoying the trip to Swithland sidings and back. In 2016 we managed two further running weekends in August and October, whilst in 2017 we managed four train weekends, including the first through trains onto the main GCR line.

Trains are operated by the Great Central Railway, so keep your eyes peeled on our website and theirs for the next running days. Trains will either operate as shuttle services, running between Mountsorrel, Nunckley and Swithland Sidings, as they did on the opening weekend or may run on to the main GCR line.

If you would like to know a little bit more about the line then we have put together a a brief history of the railway along with introductions to Mountsorrel and Nunckley stations.

So please pop back from time to time to see when trains will next be running.
