144003 coming to Ruddington

Class 144 DMU - 144003 finds a home here at Ruddington.....


Over the last couple of months, the ORR and HRA have been working with Heritage Railways to determine ways in which the railways may safely start running again. As part of this we have had to consider how, when or if we can reopen the railway side of our business to the public whilst safeguarding both our volunteers and visitors and still cover all our running costs.

It is with huge regret and much soul searching that the GCRN Directors have come to the decision that as we depend entirely on volunteers and a huge proportion of our volunteer base fall into the groups still most at risk, together with the social distancing measures involved, we have decided that we will not be operating any further services during 2020. Unfortunately, as it is unlikely that we could cover costs, this also means that our highly popular Santa Special services will not operate this year.

We will be reopening various sections of our site to the public at weekends only from Saturday 15th August. This will include our Cafe, Model Railways & Road Transport sections but for the time being, WILL NOT include the Miniature Railway run by the Nottingham Society of Model & Experimental Engineers.

In the meantime, we will still be here behind the scenes working on lots of improvements in many areas of the railway in preparation for welcoming you all back on the trains in time for Easter 2021.
