The Mountsorrel Railway is of course connected to the Great Central Railway. Now after many years of planning, the GCR has been able to make a start on reconnecting to the Great Central Railway Nottingham - crossing the Midland Main Line at Loughborough on the way.
The GCR is entering a partnership with Network Rail to build a bridge over the Midland Main Line at Loughborough. Design work is underway and the new structure is expected to be in place by mid 2015.
When the project is complete it will create an 18 mile long main line railway with a connection to the national network at Loughborough. Who knows, in the future it may be possible to catch a train from Mountsorrel halt to eventually reach London St Pancreas and beyond!
