About

Travel coast to coast across spectacular Lancashire and Yorkshire landscapes from Carnforth, to York or Scarborough.

Boarding at: Carnforth, Hellifield, Skipton, Keighley, Shipley, Woodlesford (Leeds), Lancaster, Preston, Blackburn, Hebden Bridge, Brighouse, Wakefield KG and York.

Join us for a scenic tour which combines a truly wonderful journey in traditional carriages across Lancashire and the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Enjoy the evocative smells and sounds of steam haulage from York and the beautiful scenery of North Yorkshire to the East Coast. From the comfort of your seat in some of the oldest working carriages in operation today, your adventure begins! Some of these carriages date back to the 1920s, served throughout the golden age of rail and some even featured in the Harry Potter movies and have all been lovingly restored. These traditional carriages will be hauled by diesel from Carnforth for the first part of the journey, then from York we pick up a steam engine taking us to Scarborough on a memorable journey.

Due to the high demand for seats, we are once more offering passengers the chance to travel from the West Coast of Britain en route to historic York then across North Yorkshire to the Spa town of Scarborough on the East Coast. Vintage Mark I and II carriages pull out of Carnforth on two routes, collecting passengers at various pick up stations. Arriving in York we pick up one of the oldest steam engines in the world and continue by steam across North Yorkshire to Scarborough, where we have around three hours to enjoy and explore. Alternatively passengers may choose at alight at York and discover the many attractions of this historical, walled city. On the return journey, we leave Scarborough again by steam heading towards York before continuing on the same route, calling at the same stations before arriving back in Carnforth.
