Advanced tickets are now available for the historic opening of the Mountsorrel Railway on October 24th and 25th. Full details of the event and advance tickets can be purchased on the Great Central Railway web site by clicking here.
The VIP opening of the railway will take place on the Saturday morning, so please come along to see the train break through the banner and the opening celebrations. Further details will follow nearer the time.
Public trains will commence at 12:30. There will be 5 trains on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday 25th 10 trains will run starting at 9:30am.
To avoid disappointment we recommend booking in advance, although tickets will be available from the train staff on the day.
Stonehurst Farm have very kindly agreed to allow the use of the corner of their field directly next to the station for overflow parking. This should ease the parking situation over what we hope will be a very busy weekend. Additional parking will also be available at the new heritage centre site on Swithland Lane, some 300m away. If you are coming as a part of a group please try to car share. If you are local and able to walk/cycle to the station then please do.
If you have booked your tickets in advance please arrive at least 20 minutes before your departure time, in case the station car parks are full and you need to allow time to walk from the heritage centre car park.
Mountsorrel Station can be found on Bond Lane, Mountsorrel. The station doesn't have a post code but for SATNAV purposes the nearest post code for Bond Lane is LE12 7AA some 400m or so away.
