    Mince Pie Specials

    What could be better than a lovely Boxing Day steam train ride with a complimentary mince pie? Possibly the perfect way to kick back and relax after a hectic Christmas Day. Every visitor who travels with us receives a free mince pie!

Our visitors say…

  • We planned our trip so that we would go on a diesel train one way and a steam train back and both were just so lovely. The old fashioned tickets, stations, train carriages all added to our enjoyment. We are already planning our next trip!
