All aboard the Great Central Railway for a delightful midweek steam train luncheon for two or four! Departing from Loughborough station on selected Wednesdays these dining car experiences with a full day runaround ticket included are the perfect treat for the middle of the week.The Midlander Lunch excursion is hugely popular. It’s a relaxing day out away from the weekend crowds that allows you to really enjoy these historic railway line in Leicestershire. It’s the UK’s only main lone heritage railway – and that means you’ll see moving trains going in opposite direction passing each other. It’s hugely renowned and has featured in many TV shows and films as an authentic filming location.Your trip out will see you enjoying a return journey on the full length of the line from the main Great Central Railway station at Loughborough all the way to Leicester North and back again. During your voyage luncheon will be served at your table in the first class dining car. It’s just as you’d expect in this beautifully restored carriage with big comfy armchair-style seats and a fully-set table.The onboard team will welcome you and be there for you from the moment you step onto the train from the platform to the moment they wave you off at the end of your voyage. It’s all very lovely and really rather civilised like rail travel used to be before ticket barriers and guard-less trains.The food all comes freshly prepared from the onboard galley kitchen car. We can’t imagine that it’s easy producing meals in such confined conditions on a moving train but the chefs proudly send out their restaurant-standard food on these midweek steam train luncheons trips to the appreciative passengers.As well as enjoying your meal there are all the views to take in too. You’ll be able to spot everything from landmarks of the local industrial heritage such as the former Ladybird Books factory in Loughborough to the working granite quarry at Mountsorrel. Then there’s the open countryside which is really stunning too – a highlight of which is the pause on the viaduct over Swithland Reservoir. We think these midweek steam train luncheon vouchers are the ideal Wednesday tranquil treat for you!
