The Royal Windsor Express 1
Please Note: This trip is hauled by vintage diesel
Scarborough to Windsor
Departs – Thursday 28 June 2018
From Scarborough, Seamer, Malton, York and Doncaster.
Windsor is a great choice for a day out with its magnificent castle and beautiful setting on the River Thames, but there is plenty more to this day than just Windsor itself.
Our heritage train will take us on a voyage of discovery as we make our way around London travelling lines rarely used by main line trains from the north of England.
Our diesel will speed us in comfort down the main line through Peterborough towards London. Shortly after Finsbury Park we branch off onto the North London Line and take a high level route around the capital offering views of the Eurostar Terminal, Camden Market, Acton, the West Coast Main Line and Willesden before making our way through Staines to Windsor, a most interesting ride indeed. Once in Windsor you can take a stroll down by the river, visit the castle, enjoy the shops or perhaps take a walk to Eton with its famous public school.
After our break, it's back to the comfort of our train and a relaxing journey home and another chance to enjoy the sights of the capital from a must unusual perspective.
