BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY
An excursion through some of the most wonderful scenery in the country. Hauled by classic 1960’s built British diesel locomotives (Class 50s), this excursion provides a rare opportunity to enjoy this highly scenic route as part of a through service from Oxfordshire, Cotswold Line stations and Worcestershire.
Following a journey through the midlands and West Yorkshire we join the Settle & Carlisle Line after Hellifield. Our first stop is at Settle for about thirty minutes, to unveil a commemorative plaque provided by the Cotswold Line Promotion Group (CLPG).
We return homeward around Carlisle, through the eastern Lake District and Lancashire / Cheshire / West Midlands to our joining stations to round off a marvellous day.
Didcot Parkway and Droitwich Spa have been added as joining stations.
This excursion has been organised in conjunction with CLPG. 10% discount is available for CLPG members.
