We organise up to 40 day excursions every year, as well as a number of weekend trips, travelling to many interesting destinations and events.

Some customers just love to travel in our comfortable carriages; others have a real passion for the locomotives, steam or diesel. Many travel with us time and time again – we’d love to welcome you on board too!


Take a trip with us to experience train travel as it used to be. We use classic carriages, some with opening windows and ‘slam doors’. Our excursions are hauled by both diesel and steam locomotives (sometimes both) taking you to interesting places for a great day out. We look forward to welcoming you aboard one of our tours.
