Great Central Railway

On Monday I went up to Loughborough to have a look at the steam trains. A 15-minute walk from the Midland Mainline station takes you to Loughborough Central, the headquarters of the Great Central Railway. I hope they will not mind that I have borrowed this excellent photograph from their website.

From Loughborough Central you can ride behind a steam locomotive for eight miles south, reaching the northern outskirts of Leicester. If you want to know what has happened to the route of the Great Central beyond that, visit the Great Central Through Leicester site.
