Classes of Travel

The Steam Dreams Rail Co. offers railway travel at its best, coupled with a range of options to suit a variety of tastes. Please note that the classes of travel described on this page refer to the Steam Dreams Day Trips. Descriptions for the Steam Express trips can be found on the individual trip pages. 

There are two levels of full dining to choose from, either Premier Dining  or the luxurious Pullman Style Dining

Our train has its own specialist on-board kitchen where our chef prepares fresh meals, and our friendly staff will tend to your needs at your table.

Premium Standard class passengers are served complimentary tea and coffee, and may order from a range of delicious snacks or hot and cold drinks.

The carriages described and shown on our website are intended to illustrate the experience you will receive on the day. For most of our trips in Summer 2022, we will be using LSG’s Mark 2 Statesman set. These carriages have been elegantly refurbished with cushioned seating, air-conditioning, generously-sized tables and a smart Statesman livery which harks back to the Golden Age of Travel. View images of these carriages here.


 

Pullman Style Dining

Pullman Style provides a premium railway dining experience. Passengers are seated in 1950s or 1960s carriages with wood panelling, comfortable seats, table lamps and curtains at the windows. They provide our most comfortable seats with the most leg room, and combined with the highest level of service, the atmosphere evokes memories of a bygone era.

On day trips, welcome glasses of champagne and orange juice accompany the breakfast or brunch on the outward journey. On the return journey you will be served a set evening meal. On some journeys the meals offered vary due to the trip length and time of day.

Pullman Style Dining carriages offer shared tables and (for a supplement and subject to availability) tables for 2. Passengers are automatically seated on tables for 4 so you may be seated with other passengers if you have less than 4 in your party.
