The Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre is the owner of the old Great Central Railway line from Ruddington to Loughborough junction in Leicestershire. Visitors can experience steam train journeys, view a collection of classic buses, and since the centre is set within Rushcliffe Country Park, there are plenty of scenic walks to enjoy.
