Travel to Wales' Capital Cardiff in style hauled by vintage diesel and witness first hand some truly spectacular scenery from the comfort of our vintage MkI and MkII carriages. From our Yorkshire pick-up stations we head across country and into Wales planning to arrive in Cardiff for approximately 12:30 allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the city or even do some early Christmas shopping.

CARDIFF: Cardiff has plenty of ways of killing a couple of hours, with lots of places to eat, drink and shop within a short walk of the station plus the possibility you might just about have time to be able to visit one of the attractions such as the Castle, while our train is serviced prior to the journey north.


PREMIER DINING CLASS: Includes an at seat silver service of full English Breakfast in the morning, a selection of pastries with coffee mid journey and a four course meal on the return journey all freshly prepared by our skilled chefs on board the train.

FIRST CLASS: First Class passengers will be served a selection of Tulip Muffins, freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the outward journey and a savoury refreshment box followed by cake of the day and freshly brewed coffee and fine teas on the return journey.

CHILDREN UNDER 5 can be brought on the train free of charge only if not taking up a seat and sharing seats with accompanying adults.

REFRESHMENTS: A buffet counter service of snacks, hot and cold drinks, and alcoholic beverages is available to all our Standard and First class passengers throughout the day. You are also welcome to bring your own refreshments or indeed a tasty picnic to enjoy as the countryside passes by!

First Class and Premier Dining passengers can book a private table for a supplement of £20.00 per person.
