Our tour begins from Leicester and we travel on through Derbyshire before Tornado joins our train near Chesterfield. From York we rush along the East Coast Main Line passing Darlington and Durham. We then follow the route of Hadrian’s Wall as it criss-crosses the railway en-route to the Border City of Carlisle. Here we have around two hours to explore the city with its fine museum and Castle, cosy public houses and various shops of interest.

Our return journey takes us south via the world renowned Settle and Carlisle Railway, following this remote but scenic line through the Dales, traversing soaring viaducts and thundering through tunnels along this masterpiece of Victorian engineering.

Once we have passed Settle Junction and its historic signalbox we head south through Skipton to skirt Leeds and Wakefield. We say goodbye to Tornado on the outskirts of Chesterfield before continuing our journey with a diesel locomotive as we return passengers to their outward stations.
