Loughborough Central Station (Loughborough)

Loughborough Central is the station in Loughborough for the Great Central Railway.

It has island platforms, and the entrance is in Great Central Road.

The Great Central, with its London terminus at Marylebone, was the last main line to be constructed in Britain, in the 1890s, and shamefully it was the first to suffer closure, in the 1960s, under the Marples axe.

Today, a fragment has been reopened as a thriving steam railway. Of Britain's many steam railways, it is the only one that was a main line.

The Northern terminus is Loughborough Central. There are stations at Quorn and Woodhouse, Rothley and the Southern terminus at Leicester North.

When a bridge can be reconstructed over the British Rail line, the Great Central will be able to run on to Ruddington on the outskirts of Nottingham.
