Overview

We run approximately 50 steam train day trips and several holidays by steam each year in the UK and Ireland. We offer several classes of travel including Pullman Style Dining which provides a premium railway dining experience. Carriages are restored and refurbished 1950s coaches with wood-panelled walls, comfortable seats, individual table lamps and curtains at the windows. On most day trips in Pullman Style, welcome glasses of champagne accompany the breakfast or brunch on the outward journey. On the return journey you will be welcomed on board with canapes before being served a four-course meal with a complimentary half bottle of wine per person. Other classes include Premier Dining, First Class and Premium Standard.
