Lune Rivers Trust

Lune Rivers Trust Steam Train

Operated by West Coast Railways on behalf of the Lune Rivers Trust, this annual special steam train, formerly known as "The Lune Habitat", begins its trip at Carnforth.

This year, the 'Lunes Rivers Trust' Steam Special is destined for the ancient walled city of York. Picking up at Carnforth, Wennington and Bentham, our special charter will take you on a wonderful journey across some of England's finest countryside.

We enjoy the sights and smells of steam on both legs of the journey to York and a generous break of approximately 3 hours is offered in this city which is rich in ancient history, romantic ambience and fun activities. Renowned for its exquisite architecture, tangle of quaint cobbled streets, iconic York Minster and wealth of visitor attractions. A great day out for all the family.

Once you have booked you will be given a booking reference, your tickets and confirmed timings will then be sent to you 7 days before travel. Early booking is advisable as this train has been oversubscribed in previous years.

This day has always proved to be a terrific family day out. Join us again this September.
