Old Steam Train at Market Bosworth…
Shackerstone is known as the home of the Battlefield Line Railway, a preserved steam and diesel museum, that runs trains to Bosworth Battlefield. The railway came to Shackerstone in 1873 and continued providing passenger services until 1931 after which only freight ran on the rails of the Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway. The line was finally closed by British Rail in 1970. The Railway society has since restored the station and reopened the line to Shenton Station the terminus for Bosworth Battlefield.
