So far, I’ve only added the following to the map…

  • Bluebell Railway.

Great Central Railway photos : 05-May-2014

Mark and myself had a great day at the Great Central Railway. We parked the car at Rothley Station, then got the train to Loughborough Central, then another train to Quorn & Woodhouse Station. Then walked back to Rothley Station with Cooper :).

So had a great bank holiday weekend. Done two heritage railways. North Yorkshire Moors Railway yesterday and Great Central Railway today. Now to think what line(s) we will do during the next bank holiday weekend :).

List of heritage railways I have been on

After having so much fun on the Great Central Railway on Sunday. I have now made up a small list of the heritage railway lines, I have been on in the UK.

Check out the list so far @ www.gordon-valentine.com/travel/railways/uk-heritage-railways/.

Why not, tell me the ones you have been on? By commenting at the bottom of that page. We can then have mini competition to see who’s been on the most :).

Great fun @ The Great Central Railway

I had a great afternoon at the Great Central Railway. Only had the time to from Loughborough Central station to Quorn & Woodhouse station. Then we walked back to Loughborough Central station with the dog to where, we parked the car.

Lucky the dog, did mind being on the train at all. So next time, we go. We can do more of the line :).

I will leave, you with some photos, I took!
