Help us celebrate our 10th birthday in style with a Deltic hauled day trip to Edinburgh this summer.
On route we'll pass the imposing Cumbrian fells and ascend the famous Beattock summit before branching off at Carstairs towards the beautiful capital of Scotland. You will have just over 4 hours to visit the many sights Edinburgh has to offer, including the famous castle, The Royal Mile, as well as the many shops and, of course, the festival events. You can also visit Leith, a stone’s throw from the city centre, where The Royal Yacht Britannia is moored.
Our famous on board ‘Real Ale Bar’ will be available, serving a variety of hand-pumped Real Ales, wines and hot snacks. We are the only mainline operator to serve real ales by hand-pump in Britain! We have requested 1960s vintage Deltic locomotive, D9009 ‘Alycidon’ as the main tour locomotive. On the return, the Deltic will detach at York, and a Class 67 will take the train forward. As usual, there will be three classes of accommodation to suit all budgets.
