What is this?

Take the family to enjoy a relaxed, unhurried and civilised journey on a steam train. This majestic vehicle has been around for over 200 years, moving passengers from place to place. Seeing the trains in all their glory brings a real sense of history to your day and there is always plenty to see, making this an experience perfect for the whole family.

The experience varies depending on the location you choose. Some journeys are return trips while others are all day rovers and you may be able to stop off en route to explore the local area on foot. Depending on the location, you may be able to visit other attractions at the venue such as a steam train museum. Cumbria is a narrow gauge railway while Derby boasts a diesel train.
