This train excursion experience combines good food and nostalgia as you step back in time for a romantic dinner on board a steam train journey through some of the finest countryside in the East Midlands.
Your evening starts as soon as you arrive at the beautifully restored period railway station and glide down along the platform to climb aboard the first class restaurant carriage. The train you board is named 'The Charnwood Forester'.
The journey will pass through some spectacular countryside, with all the smells and sounds of the steam train as a wonderful setting to your meal. The menus have been created to reflect the sort of food you could expect at the height of luxury steam train travel in the 1950's.
Both trains offer a well stocked bar and the restaurant cars are all non smoking
The train stops off at the destination station before returning, allowing time for you to stretch your legs and take a digestif on the romantic gas lit platform!
