A step back in time

A great experience travelling in the age of steam. Staffed by volunteers who have an obvious passion and knowledge for the line.

Brilliant trip today and such amazing value for money! Both adults and kids were spoiled with treats and I would say this is a better experience than the Polar Express which we did last year, and far cheaper. We'll done to all the volunteers involved.

This was our second trip on this railway. We frequently travel on heritage trains throughout the country with our grandson and we think that the views from this train are some of the best we have enjoyed. When we arrived at Redmire we had a 180degree stunning vista in front of us which was well worth the journey. We will... More

Had pleasure in arranging a surprise 80th birthday footplate experience for my Brother in Law last Saturday together with 19 surprise relatives to ride the coaches. Took some doing to keep it all quiet but the Railway Staff were really helpful in both the booking arrangements and on the day. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the return trip from Leeming to Redmire...
