GCRN (Great Central Railway Nottingham)
Travel almost 10 miles of heritage railway
With nearly 10 miles of heritage railway across South Nottinghamshire and North-West Leicestershire, the GCRN is not to be missed.
Model railways and country parks
Travelling by train was once a thrilling experience – not just a way to get from A to B. The GCRN encapsulates this perfectly. Staffed by volunteers with a real passion for preserving railway heritage, it offers an excellent day out for the whole family.
Don’t miss the model railways and vintage bus collection at Ruddington station, or the scenic country park just a short walk away. It also hosts a range of events throughout the year – check the calendar to plan ahead.
