Wonderful Days Out by Steam Train

Welcome to The Steam Dreams Rail Co's website.

Sit back, relax and let the romance of steam travel whisk you away to a bygone era as you travel through the UK and beyond. With a vast array of trips across beautiful British countryside, The Steam Dreams Rail Co. will treat you to an experience to treasure forever.

Whether you choose to join us on a Cathedrals Express day out to one of the UK's magnificent Cathedral Cities, a coastal town or a Cathedrals Explorer steam hauled holiday around the British Isles your journey will be truly memorable. In 2020 we are embarking on the most adventurous steam hauled trip of modern times to the USA as we head across the Great Lakes of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan behind the world's biggest coal fired locomotive - Milwaukee 261!

You can choose to dine with us in our Pullman Style or Premier Dining carriages where we serve beloved British dishes with a modern twist using seasonal ingredients or, if you prefer the flexibility of buying from our on board range of snacks and drinks or bringing your own picnic, First Class or Premium Standard.

The food was excellent, the pullman coach was very comfortable and the loco was beautiful. It was a fabulous way to celebrate my husband's birthday and we hope to travel again with you in the future.

Wow! Yesterday's trip behind 60009 Union of South Africa will be another wonderful lasting memory of my nostalgic trips with Steam Dreams. Many Thanks to you all.

We had the most incredible day. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and dealt with a (notified) dietary restriction with ease. The organisation and timings were superb and we felt like royalty.

What makes the experience truly enjoyable is the great team of staff. Everyone has a smile and genuinely goes out of their way to be helpful and make everybody's day special.
