A Christmas steam journey to remember. Save £10pp with Saga

30 October 2017

Start the Christmas season with a festive journey on board one of The Railway Touring Company’s steam trains each heading to a great destination and watch out for Father Christmas on route!



For a truly memorable Christmas treat step on board one of The Railway Touring Company’s festive trains for a nostalgic trip to York, Lincoln, pretty Sherborne, Eastbourne, Bath, Bristol or Chester.

Father Christmas

Adding to the excitement of travelling in the company of historic steam locos, including sleek 60009 Union of South Africa, majestic 46233 Duchess of Sutherland, powerful Black 5 45305 or mighty 70013 Oliver Cromwell, will be a visit from Father Christmas and his Elves with a gift for children on board.*

Christmas markets

What better way to visit the famous Christmas fair at Bath, or to top up on Christmas shopping in vibrant Bristol, than on board steam special ‘The Bath Christmas Market’? Or, take the ‘Christmas White Rose’ or ‘York Yuletide Express’ to experience the very special festive atmosphere of ancient York.

Festive on board dining

Alternatively, why not join ‘The Sherborne Christmas Carol’ to attend a traditional carol service at beautiful Sherborne Abbey or sit back, relax and enjoy a festive lunch on board ‘The Christmas Sussex Belle’ as the attractive South Downs scenery slides by?

Christmas gift vouchers

And, for a very special present indeed, ask The Railway Touring Company about ‘Gift Vouchers’ for one of the many steam adventures from stations across the country in 2018.
