Overview

The Golden Age of Steam is so-called for good reason – there is nothing quite like chugging along in a steam powered train through beautiful countryside.

For over 200 years, the steam train has provided a mode of transport; once essential, it is now a charming reminder of how things used to be. With the Steam Train Experience for Two, history buffs and train enthusiasts alike will appreciate the chance to experience travel as it would have been at the turn of the last century. For a fascinating experience about how steam power changed the way the world worked, this activity cannot be missed!

On arrival at your chosen venue, you can swap your voucher for steam train tickets at the ticket office.

The experience on offer will vary depending on the venue you choose. Some journeys are all day rovers which allow you to get on and off throughout the day and some are return journeys. Either way, you can explore the local area as well as enjoying your steam train experience.

Some locations have other attractions included in the ticket price such as a museum or information centre.

What did you get up to?
We arrived at Nene Valley Railway, Wansford a little early, so we sat in the Cafe and had a Cornish pasty and Cappuccino. We then went outside and walked about until it was time to board the train. You had a choice of private booths or public, we decided on a private booth. First stop Yarwell this is the end of the track in the opposite direction to Peterborough. On route you go through a tunnel that lasts approx. 2 minutes our very knowledgeable conductor Andrew told us that this was the tunnel that was used in the James Bond movie Octopussy. We got off while we waited for the train engine to turn around to go back to Wansford and onto Peterborough, first stop on the journey to Peterborough is Overton where we stepped off for 5 minutes to take in the lovely morning sun and waited for more passengers to board, next stop Orton. Once we got to Peterborough, we took a lovely stroll into town, where we wondered about the malls and shops. On our way back to the station for our journey back home, we stopped along the canal and watch the people feeding the duck and swans. On our journey back we decided to sit in the public booths, we ordered something to drink from the Buffet car on the train, it is very well stocked with food, drinks and all sorts. There are lovely little gift shops at all the stations where you are able to purchase memorabilia or some lovely goodies.
What did you enjoy the most?
Our favourite part of this experience was chatting to Andrew the conductor whom is very knowledgeable and just taking in the lovely country side. The sheer beauty of the Autunm colours with the changing season.
Top Tip
Just sit back, relax and enjoy!!

Llanberis Train Experience
Seeing the the scenery when catching this train at Llanberis is the attraction that people go on this experience for that is right next to the lake. The railway did expand the train tracks that are further than Llanberis which in total should have been about five miles. However, it didn't appear to be five miles. When the train stopped at a particular point, people could get off but there was nothing to go to e.g., if a tea shop had been setup then would enhance the experience. The train was clean and tidy and for children it is ideal of seeing Snowdon. The cafe offered a wide range of hot and cold food and drinks. Gift shop was interesting. Additionally, the Slate Musuem is also based at the same site as the train station that was free to enter and that was really interesting. The amount paid for the gift experience against the cost for an adult and a senior citizen appears to be more than what the actual cost is if this experience had been booked dir

No Steam
Steam train wasn't available so had a diesel train. Wasn't informed until we arrived on the day after driving an hour to the station. Had a nice stop off at Ferry Meadows and walked into Peterborough city centre before returning. Nice day, nice weather pity about no steam!!

Not complete
Booked the journey so we could get off and walk around at Duffield for the morning before coming back. They'd had a landslide on the track and not sorted out who's the responsibility it was so couldn't actually get to Duffield! A wasted journey that was simply 2 hours sitting on a train. We weren't notified on arrival so wouldn't have known unless we looked at the website to confirm timings. The carriage we sat in had bugs on flying around too. Not a great experience, but the views were lovely.
