Sentimental Journeys simply oozes nostalgia. A mixture of on-train journeys and visits to lineside and stations show the British railway scene as it was more than half a century ago.

You will visit lines long since closed, see locomotives and coaches long since scrapped and witness a way of life long since forgotten.

Highlights include:

  • A trip along the Central Wales line to Swansea Victoria
  • A visit to the oldest passenger-carrying railway in the world - the Mumbles Railway
  • A trip onto the Southern aboard a Birkenhead-Margate holiday train
  • A visit to Folkestone Harbour with views of the SS Canterbury being loaded and three SECR Class R1 shunters hauling a boat train up the formidable incline while a fourth banks the train
  • A variety of locos at Ramsgate
  • A visit and ride on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway
  • On board the Ian Allan Pennine Special, with 60157 to Leeds and a pair of Midland Compounds to Crewe
  • The SLS Birmingham tour with two Midland 0-6-0 2Fs visiting Harborne and Halesowen
  • A Britannia at Ely and another at Swindon
  • On board the last train from Monmouth to Ross-on-Wye in the snow
  • A trip over Beattock to Scotland
  • Lineside action on the East Coast main line with a superb variety of Pacifics at York, Grantham and Arlesey
  • A trip along the sea wall at Dawlish and a 'King' hauling the Cornish Riviera on August Bank Holiday 1958
  • A tour from the Midlands to Eastleigh, with views of Oxford shed, the now-closed Didcot to Newbury line, Eastleigh shed and Swindon Town station
  • Named expresses departing from Paddington

All this and plenty more will keep you entertained and bring the memories flooding back.
