About this event

To complement the goods yard shoots that we run at Quorn, on this occasion we are pleased to offer a slightly different event based around the station itself.

As many of you will know, Quorn & Woodhouse Station is immaculately restored to recreate the steam era and our shoot will feature appropriately dressed staff and passengers set against this superb backdrop. The station is, with a little artistic license, being restored to the condition in which it would have appeared in the 1940s, and our event will reflect the period of the post-war 1940s to early 1950s. The station dates from 1899 when it was opened as part of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway’s London Extension from Sheffield which would later become the Great Central Railway and, from grouping in 1923, part of the London & North Eastern Railway. Closed in the 1960s, it has been impeccably restored by volunteers since the early 1970s to the condition in which you see it today.

Our event will start around 17.30 once service trains have finished and run through until dusk. Parking may be in the field adjacent to the station as there is a vintage vehicle festival taking place during the day, but we will advise on this nearer the time. We hope you will be able to join us for a Summer evening of re-enact or photography at the Great Central Railway.
