The Christmas Forester

Your five course dinner plus tea/coffee is served aboard our First Class Restaurant Cars as one of our historic main line steam locomotives* takes you on a leisurely journey through the Leicestershire countryside. The train departs from Loughborough Central and your meal is served during the journey.

There will be an interlude at the delightfully atmospheric Rothley station complete with original Edwardian gas lights. The train departs from Loughborough Central at 7.00pm, returning at approximately 10.00pm.

*Steam Loco may be substituted for a Heritage Diesel Loco when Steam is not available.
