This was a brilliant experience. We made sure we was on the stream trains each time (going and coming back). I had my head out of window, that was mint. We loved every min. Would definitely recommend.

We went on a cold day and were well dressed for it. It was my birthday and my wife had brought me a new jacket. The trains were some of the best turned out I have seen on a working railway and the scenery. WOW. A big fan of Yorkshire!
