First Class lunch for 2 on the Elizabethan steam train on the Great Central Railway from Loughborough or the South Yorkshireman steam locomotive.

The Great Central Railway is the UK's only double track, main line heritage railway. It’s the only place in the world where full-size steam engines can be seen passing each other – just as it was when steam ruled the rails. The present day Great Central Railway is a unique heritage railway located in the university town of Loughborough in the East Midlands of England between the cities of Leicester and Nottingham.

It is on the route of the old Great Central Railway that linked the cities of Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham, and Leicester with London at its terminus station at Marylebone. The preserved railway is predominantly steam operated and has a double track section which allows passengers to experience the thrill of trains passing at speed. 

In this respect it is unique in the preservation world. But the GCR is more than just a tourist line. Its double track allows for commercial testing of railway vehicles at speeds of up to 75 mph for diesel hauled trains and 60 mph for steam hauled trains. The railway has won a number of awards including “independent railway of the year”, a gold award for the East Midlands best visitor experience and is a quality assured visitor attraction as designated by Enjoy England
