The Great Central Railway (GCR) has announced the return of dining train services and a full menu in Station’s cafes from the end of May.
With the UK currently following a roadmap out of full national lockdown, the next stage for easing COVID-19 restrictions and safety measures is due in just under two weeks, which will see a couple of changes.
Since reopening on Saturday the 17th of April, GCR has already seen over a thousand people visit the line, a great start and providing much-needed revenue.
Great Central Railway’s Managing Director Michael Gough said: “We are so delighted to be running again and welcoming back our visitors. Inevitably, ongoing restrictions and rules surrounding the pandemic continue to restrict the extent of our activities but these are the first few small steps to recovery and one thing that the pandemic has taught us, is to be grateful for “little wins”. Throughout the Summer we have a number of events planned including our post-lockdown steam gala in June, our Beer Festival and Vintage Fair in July, Villains and Superheroes and Animal Fun in August and our hugely popular War Weekend in September.”
