Top tips for a great day out
1. Our heritage carriages provide a wonderfully nostalgic setting but don’t offer some of the conveniences of modern trains. As there are no electric sockets, you may wish to bring a battery pack to recharge your phone for taking even more photos of your journey!
2. Another charming quirk of our heritage carriages is the temperature control. Heating on the train is provided by way of steam made by Tornado, as such it is a little variable. By contrast, on a sunny day a lack of air conditioning can make the train warm. We recommend wearing layers so that you are comfortable throughout the journey.
3. Should the stunning scenery and sounds from the locomotive not be enough, you may wish to bring something to pass the time such as a good book, pack of cards or even a board game. Each seat is positioned at a table so there is plenty of room for fun.
4. Due to intermittent signal levels along our routes, card machines don’t always work. We advise bringing some cash along for items from the buffet car and merchandise by which to remember the trip!
