Trip Specific Information

This trip will be steam hauled on the outward journey and diesel hauled on the return. The carriages and service provided on board is the same in both directions.

Although this trip will call at Ealing Broadway, West Hampstead and Finsbury Park on the outward journey, on the return journey London Kings Cross will be the only London stop.

York's famous Christmas Festival and Fair is one of the most highly rated in the UK - and probably one of the most picturesque too. Set in the centre of the historic Cathedral City, it sees streets in the centre transformed into a Christmas wonderland.

We fully expect to operate this trip with our usual level of service. Please rest assured we are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment on board, whilst adhering to Public Health regulations. We will be in touch with all customers prior to your trip, with further information about what to expect on board and what to bring with you.


Black Fives were known as ?do-anything and go-anywhere? locomotives

18 Black Fives survived into preservation with several examples still working on the mainline railway. Members of the class that have feature on previous tours with The Steam Dreams Rail Co. include 45212, 44871, 45407, 45305 & 44932.

The first class 5 locomotive was built for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway in 1934 to the design of Sir William Stanier. The new locomotives when built left the railway works in the standard mixed traffic black livery which soon earned them the nickname "Black Fives" for which they are still affectionately referred to today. The locomotives were capable of handling both express passenger and freight trains and were spread far and wide across the UK railway system. By the time the last Black Five was built in 1951, the class numbered 842 locomotives; one of the most numerous classes of British steam locomotives ever built.

Whilst this locomotive is rostered for the steam hauled sections of the trip listed, it cannot be guaranteed and may be substituted for a different engine.
