Description

Take a journey back in time and enjoy a fun-filled, nostalgic day out with this Steam Train Experience for Two.

This majestic vehicle has been around for over 200 years and was a key part in the growth of the Industrial Revolution. Seeing these trains up close and in all their glory brings a real sense of history to your day.

Britain boasts more railway attractions per square mile than any other country in the world. And with 100 heritage railways, 60 steam museum centres and 700 operational engines, all supported by an legion of 23,000 enthusiastic volunteers, a day out on a steam train offers people the chance to savour a bygone age of riding aboard a lovingly preserved locomotive.

Unlike the usual trip on commuter trains, this is one train journey you will not want to hurry by quickly. Instead, sit back and relax and enjoy the ride as you meander through some of the most glorious and unspoiled parts of the English countryside.

This is a fantastic day out for everyone, and with a choice of scenic locations to choose from is a great way to see different parts of the country while travelling in style. Some locations offer a whole day rover ticket, enabling you to be able to stop off en route to enjoy some sightseeing or a picnic. At others, your ticket is valid for a return journey.

Please note: If the Steam train is unavailable for reasons beyond the control of the venue it will be replaced by a Diesel train.

Steam Train Severn & WVE JT Rly.

The signage to the place was not good. The collection of steam trains and diesels were very good and well cared for. The ride on the steam train was excellent. The buffet /café on site was clean and tidy with good service. In comparison to other similar ventures it was as good as if not better than most. The ride through the countryside was superb. An excellent day out well worth the Trip.

Last years Christmas present

Given as a present and mislaid until only two months left before expiry date. Contacted the web site and organised the visit to the East Lancs Railway at Bury on a day with steam power - easy following the given instructions - no problem. We had a great day with all day tickets travelling until the last train of the day. Very friendly, helpful staff, lovely locos and clean carriages. Interesting area including a chocolate café at Ramsbottom.

Good day out

We used it on the East Lancs railway from Rawtenstall to Bury and return. Due to the nature and size of this railway this was good value for money and a great day out. However, most of the other railways offered in the deal are very much smaller, and in my opinion the £29 cost would not represent good value, and would not recommend.

Fantastic day out!

I received this gift as a Christmas present from friend. It was a great gift and enabled myself and my partner to have a day out riding on a steam train and seeing all the sights along the way as well as getting off and seeing the engine sheds and the restoration work going on there close up. We love photography so had a great time snapping away especially as we went on a beautiful autumn day and it wasn't too busy.

A Step back in Time

I had a Steam Train Experience bought for me and it was absolutely marvelous. I went on a train at Nene Valley Railway and it was like stepping back in time. The Staff were all dressed in nostalgic outfits, the station was decorated with nostalgic items and the train was amazing.
