With an intensive timetable there will be plenty of chances to ride behind the three visiting locomotives in our heritage coaches where our on-board buffet service will be in operation selling a range of hot & cold drinks, real ales and all-day breakfast cobs.

At Shackerstone Station you will find a variety of sales stands, with model railway traders and locomotive group support stands in attendance.

A short 5-inch gauge miniature railway will be providing rides along platform 2 (extra charge payable) using steam and electric locomotives.

The goods shed at Market Bosworth will play host to an extensive gauge 1 model railway for the weekend, with live steam in operation both days. Miniature steam traction engines will also be on site too!

A free heritage bus link from Nuneaton and Hinckley will also be in operation, see details below:

(Note: The 1915 service from Shackerstone runs on Saturday only!)
