About

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 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.

But prices, stations and dates can be found on our website
