Join us for a wonderful Valentine‘s lunchtime tour with Tornado, the perfect way to celebrate the romance of steam.

On Saturday 13th February, step on board at York, Thirsk and Darlington as we take a circular route along the East Coast Main Line, the route locomotive was designed for, with a great mix of speed, scenery and steam.
Our train departs from York station a little before midday and we head north to pick up further passengers at Thirsk and Darlington. Our journey continues northwards passing Durham with its magnificent view of the Cathedral and Castle before we soon cross the Tyne and pass Newcastle. A few miles on we diverge to take the ‘Blyth and Tyne’ route via Bedlington and Hepscott before turning south at Morpeth. We will run along the East Coast Main Line all the way back to York retracing our steps from Newcastle.
On board passengers can look forward to a cosy heritage carriage, with seats alongside large windows, ideal for taking in the rolling countryside as the steam from the locomotive drifts by. 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.
