The double track heritage railway announces that all four of its stations are to open from Saturday June 26, 2021, as near-normal service commences.
The Great Central Railway has been limited to running passenger trains from Quorn and Woodhouse Stations only, operating a single round-trip service, during the COVID-19 pandemic. From Saturday, June 26, visitors will be able to board and disembark from the trains at Loughborough, Quorn & Woodhouse, Rothley and Leicester North Stations.
The railway is to re-introduce its all-day rover ticket against the current single journey ticket. This will enable visitors to visit and explore the railway and all of its stations, the Butler Henderson Café and Ellis Tea Rooms for a selection of food and refreshments, plus its quirky Tin Shed Shanty Bar, at Quorn, for a pint of real ale, draught cider, wines and soft drinks.
At Loughborough its retail shop will be open with counter service only. Ticket prices and further details can be found on the railway's website.
