We travelled on several steam trains that ran from Leicester to Loughborough. We got on the train at Rothley station and travelled up and down the line. Everyone enjoyed the steam trains.

We got the answer from the schedule on their website, which distinguished steam trains from others, and found it accurate on the day.
