Leicester North Station (Leicester)

Leicester North is a station on the reopened team railway, the Great Central, and is at present the Southern terminus.

It can be found on the Northern edge of Leicester, at the foot of Mowmacre Hill and close to the Red Hill Circle.

The Great Central was the last of Britain's main line railways to be constructed in the 1890s, and shamefully was the first to be done away with in the 1960s under the Marples Axe.

Today the Great Central is a popular tourist attraction. It is the only preserved railway in the country which was a main line.

Steam trains run from Leicester North (near the site of Belgrave and Birstall Station), with a station at Rothley and another at Quorn and Woodhouse, to Loughborough Central Station.
