The Lancastrian 2013

Departs Saturday 16th February 2013 from St Neots, Huntingdon, Peterborough, Grantham, Newark, Retford and Doncaster.


Following a similar itinerary to our tour from Cleethorpes our tour from the East Coast Main Line once again offers a scenic trip by steam train which combines the scenery of the Lune and Ribble Valleys with a short break in the historic town of Lancaster.

Departing around 0630 from St Neots we travel with diesel haulage north and then across country to Preston on the west coast. At Preston we detach our diesel and steam takes over for a lovely circular tour around the Forest of Bowland. From Preston we head north behind steam and run alongside the Lancaster canal, cross the River Lune and pass through Lancaster itself before enjoying views across Morecambe Bay. Leaving the main line at Carnforth and turning inland towards Clapham and Settle we skirt the beautiful Yorkshire Dales before running along the Ribble Valley through Clitheroe and back onto the West Coast Main Line to Lancaster where we break our journey. After a break of two to three hours we return, diesel hauled once again, across country to Doncaster and then south to home stations.
