Future Planned Trips - The Cumbrian Mountain Express

Unfortunately, due to the current CoronaVirus pandemic, the majority of future trips have been cancelled by our tour operators.
However, we are pleased to announce that the Railway Touring Company are going to run the Cumbrian Mountain Express on Saturday May 22nd 2021. 86 259 takes the train from London Euston to Carlisle, calling at Milton Keynes, Rugby, Nuneaton, Crewe and Preston. The train continues to Carnforth where 86 259 is replaced by a steam locomotive, taken from the Carnforth pool. The train is then steam-hauled to Carlisle where there will be time available to explore this ancient city with its cathedral and castle, plus an assortment of shops and cafes. Leaving Carlisle the train joins the Settle & Carlisle Railway, one of the most well known and best loved stretches of railway line in Britain. On reaching Preston the steam locomotive is replaced by 86 259 for the fast run back to to Euston, calling at the same stations as on the outward journey.
Full details are on the Railway Touring Company's Cumbrian Mountain website.
Please revisit this site regularly for any updates on future trips; we hope to be offering more trips as soon as the restrictions due to the current pandemic are relaxed.
Meanwhile, we would like to thank all who have supported the restoration and continuing upkeep of locomotive 86259 by joining our past trips, and hope to be able to see you again very soon.
Keep well.
