A most romantic way to celebrate Valentine‘s is with an evening steam train.
On the evening of Saturday 13th February, join us from York for a romantic adventure through the night. This tour is a great way to mark the occasion and will also be the first time Tornado has visited Harrogate and Knaresborough.
Departing from York station we initially head north before turning west and passing through the delightful stations at Poppleton, Hammerton and Cattal. The route still features semaphore signals and manually operated crossing gates, somewhat of a rarity on the modern railway and to a design that predates that of our locomotive. We cross over the river Nidd on a delightful viaduct and will soon be curving through Harrogate station as we turn south and square up to the steep climb through the long Bramhope Tunnel. We then descend into Leeds where there will be a break to take photos of Tornado. We then whisk our way back to York and round off a wonderful evening of steam.
On board passengers can look forward to a cosy heritage carriage, with seats alongside large windows, ideal for listening to the sound of the steam engine and taking in the twinkling lights as we pass towns and villages. Standard Class seats are situated at a large tables making it the perfect place for a picnic, while those traveling in First Class can enjoy tea, coffee and biscuits in their large comfy chairs. For the ultimate romantic trip, indulge in Premier Dining to experience silver service dining on board.
