Trip Specific Information

Our journey begins at Shoeburyness railway station, the eastern terminus of the London, Tilbury and Southend Line. Our train will stop at Southend East and Barking to pick up passengers before skirting London and heading out through Surrey, joining the Portsmouth Direct line to Portsmouth. Sit back and relax in the jovial atmosphere, enjoying the views from your window. All passengers will receive a souvenir booklet with a map and details of the route to add interest to your journey.

Upon arrival at Portsmouth the time is yours to explore the city at your leisure. Visit Southsea Castle and the D-Day Museum for an insight into the city's past, or explore the range of fantastic independent shops and eateries on Albert Road. After a wonderful break we meet at the station and will welcome you back on board for our homeward journey.

This trip will be steam hauled between West London and Portsmouth in both directions.


Stanier Class no. 45231 Sherwood Forester was built in 1936 for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway.

Since then it has worked all over the country, from routes in Wales and Northern England in its working life, to heritage railways in Southern England to the beautiful Mallaig line in Scotland, where Harry Potter was filmed.
