First chance for you to experience the Mountsorrel Railway in person!

On the weekend of 9 and 10 May, it'll be the first chance for you to experience the Mountsorrel Railway in person.

That weekend the award winning Great Central Railway (GCR) is holding a gala show to celebrate its ruby anniversary. Steam and diesel engines will be lining up, with other attractions, to mark 40 years of preservation progress.

Most exciting will be a regular free bus shuttle from Quorn station to the Mountsorrel Railway for gala ticket holders. You'll be able to walk the route of the line and meet volunteers working on the project. Good footwear is advised.

For more information about this exciting opportunity to visit the Mountsorrel Railway for the first time, see the GCR website or contact us. Thank you.

Junior Ecology Group launches

Junior Ecology Group members at work on the Mountsorrel Railway planting wild flowers

The Mountsorrel Railway project has begun a new group for those aged under 14 who would like to be involved in the project.

The Junior Ecology Group will take on tasks to help develop and encourage the ecology of the trackbed and will work alongside our existing Ecology Group. Current tasks involve the planting of wild flowers along the sides of the formation and studies/investigations into the vast diversity of wildlife that exists along the railway corridor.

This is an ideal opportunity for children to learn about wildlife up close and in a natural environment. If you or your children would like to get involved with either the Junior or Senior Ecology Group, please send an email to

Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied on site by a parent/guardian at all times.
