The East Lancashire Railway pulls out all of the stops to make sure Christmas is the most magical time of the year, from the fairy lit platforms to the beautifully decorated vintage carriages. Whether visiting as part of a work’s “do”, a family gathering or as a treat for someone special, our Festive Diners provide a deliciously good time.
Choose from either an afternoon or evening train and relax in the comfort of our luxury Pullman style carriages as our attentive waiters deliver a fabulously festive four or five course meal.
