In August 1873 the Midland and London North Western railway companies opened the Ashby and Nuneaton Joint Railway. Today, over 143 years later, it is the headquarters of the Battlefield Line and the home of the Shackerstone Railway Society. The Society operates the railway from Shackerstone Station, via Market Bosworth, to Shenton, the site of the famous medieval Battle of Bosworth in 1485.
