    Mince Pie Specials

    Keep your eyes on the pies!

    What better way to relax after a frantic Christmas Day than to settle down for a sedate steam train ride and enjoy a delicious mince pie.

    What’s Included?

    Take a steam train ride along the Irwell Valley and receive a complimentary mince pie, courtesy of the East Lancashire Railway. It’s our way of saying Merry Christmas!
