The GCR are still to sort out the details for advanced bookings for the October opening, so please don't phone the booking office to book your place just yet. Hang fire for now and we will post again to let you know when they are up and running.

It has taken 8 years and over 80,000 hours of volunteer time to restore. The Mountsorrel Railway and the new station on Bond Lane, Mountsorrel will be opening for public passenger trains on October 24th and 25th!
This is not the start of passenger trains running every weekend though. The Great Central Railway will be operating this as a trial weekend to gauge public interest and to work through operational matters. The line should open again in 2016 but how often trains run depends entirely on passgener numbers over the October 24th and 25th weekend.
So set asside one of those dates in your diary and come along to ride the trains! Please download and forward the leaflet above to everyone you know and spread the word. We want to see trains running every weekend next year but that will only be possible with your support.
With ticket prices as low as this it is a weekend not to be missed!
