Great Central Railway, Nottingham
Trains and things

I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't go just a little bit soppy over the sight of an actual steam engine, huffing and puffing it’s way along a bit rickety old railway track.

OK. Maybe I have met someone and I don’t talk to her anymore.

I mean, if you can’t get excited over all that smell and steam and noise and steam and power and noise and smell and steam, then you just don’t have soul, man.

Apologies for that lapse into 1960s speak. Maybe it was a subconscious desire to slip back into the golden age of steam, draughty houses without central heating and pre decimal currency (you knew when you had a penny or two back then ... your pockets were full).

Every steam engine has it’s own personality. It’s like they are alive and messy and just great!

If, however, you are one of those rare ones that just don’t get it. Not to worry. The Great Central Railway is not just about old steam engines gracefully (if that word fits for several tons of iron and steel on the move) lumbering their way to somewhere near Loughborough on a cold winter’s afternoon. They have other stuff too.

They have a mini railway, that gives rides and a model railway ... ... if you are not into trains then they also have loads of old buses ... ... and if you don’t like old public transport ... ... then I only have two things to say to you.

1. This place is not for you.

2. Get yourself a life.
