A friend and I went for an Italian meal on a steam train! Vintage Trains wanted to test their 1930s High Speed Steam engine "Earl of Mount Edgcumbe" after its winter maintenance, so they arranged a trip round in a circle from Birmingham to Leicester and back with their Pullman dining cars. We left their Tyseley station at 5.30pm and were back again by 9.30pm having had a lovely four course Italian meal of cold meads, eggplant, lasagne and tiramasu with excellent and cherful service. The hot dishes were piping hot. Wine was available. Coffee after. And a few minutes to see the steam engine when we stopped at Leicester. Our coach steward kept us informed of what was happening and we even met the engine driver. Recommended. Vintage Trains run trips about once a fortnight but this evening dining train was unusual
