  Mole Valley District Council - Central Railway
Central Railway plc is the company promoting the construction of a new rail freight link between the Channel Tunnel and the North of England.
However, Central Railway have indicated that the position of the tunnel portals and the line of the tunnel are purely indicative and will be the subject of further consultation.
It is understood the SRA examined Central Railway's demand and revenue forecasts, factors affecting mode choice, the impact of the proposals on other services on the existing network and it's relationship with other strategic rail objectors.

I left the railway here for the road, taking time to pause in the village's churchyard lit by the low evening sunshine, before crossing back to the line via a footpath, the better to see Helmdon viaduct.
To the north we were drawing close to a second meeting place for railways - Woodford Halse, where the company established extensive workshops and marshalling yards in a remote country location where land was cheap, the result being a small railway town of red brick terraces put down among the ironstone villages of Northamptonshire's uplands.

 Central Railway - Welcome
Central Railway is proposing to remove millions of long distance HGVs from UK motorways by building a European standard railway between the North of England and Northern France.
The railway is designed to run a cost effective lorries-on-trains operation which dovetails with theneeds of logistics and haulage companies.
It is thanks to his strategic thinking - and tenacity - that Central Railway has gained the broad base of support it now enjoys, not least from the many City and industry players who have provided letters of comfort to the Government stating that the project is financeable without taxpayer subsidy.

 BBC NEWS | UK | England | Vandals attack steam railway
Vandals have attacked the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire - the latest in a string of attacks on the tourist attraction this year.
The railway prides itself on being a unique piece of the county's heritage and a major tourist draw for the area, attracting 150,000 visitors a year.
The attacks come at a particularly bad time as the railway, which costs around £3,500 a day to run, is facing up to losing one of its major benefactors.

 Chris Tolley's "The Great Central Railway and Migration from Europe to north America"
The particular surprise I have in mind at the moment is the fact that a lady in the USA asked me one day if I could let her know anything about the Great Central Railway (GCR), because she was trying to trace the journey her ancestors made from Northern Europe to the USA.
The first proper main-line railway was the Liverpool and Manchester, which was opened to the public in 1830, though some say that the honour of being regarded as the first public railway should really go to the Stockton and Darlington, which offered passenger services in 1825.
When during the 1960's it became an economic necessity to close unprofitable railway lines, the former GCR line to London was one of those which went.

 Lower Kingswood Village Local Issues
Although the report is still not (yet) in the public domain it is believed that the SRA is not convinced that the project is sound and are therefore advising the government not to support Central Railway's attempts to speed up the planning process.
Central Railway has published details of two recent letters from the (French state-owned) SNCF confirming their support for and promotion of this project.
Given that the UK rail-franchisee Connex is French owned (as are many UK water companies!) there is no reason to suppose that the French government and/or shareholders wouldn't take a major stake in this project if it were to progress further.

 Great Central Railway through Leicester
The Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway operated in the north of England in the 19th.
As part of the, by then, nationalised British Railways (BR), the fortunes of the former Great Central Railway took a nose dive in the late 1950s when it was split between two regions of BR, the Midland and the Eastern regions.
These two railways are seperated only by a gap across the Midland Main Line of Britain’s main railway network, to the north of Loughborough Central station, where a bridge and embankment were demolished in the late 1970s.
