We traveled on The Esk Valley Explorer, from Southport to Whitby
We joined at Wigan, the train arrived on time much to the confusion of the commuters to Manchester.
There was as previously described three levels of service available, Premier dining; 1st Class with cream tea and pasties and a standard service with buffet cart. We opted for Premier dining with full English Breakfast, Pastries at Eleven and a Four Course Silver Service Meal on The Return.
The carriage was extremely comfortable with the classic table with a lamp, already laid in preparation for our journey. The classic layout of the carriage meant that each table has its own full window. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and we were plied with a full English Breakfast, and tea and coffee as we sped along.
We had about 3 hours in Whitby on beautiful day.
On the return the table was already laid in preparation for our return journey. The staff were again very welcoming and helpful and we were plied with a full Four Course Silver Service Meal.
A Great Railway Adventure
