West Coast Railways are pleased to offer a series of excursions hauled by vintage diesel or steam engines, or a combination of both, taking you the length and breadth of the country by either vintage diesel or steam engine in traditional carefully restored Mark I or Mark II carriages.
Our Railtours Trips are updated on a regular basis throughout the year to bring a selection of tours throughout the UK. Many of our tours are old favourites such as journeys along the stunning Settle & Carlisle line, or trips to the seaside, city excursions to Edinborough, London, Chester, York etc, we have trips to suit everyone. What better way to see the countryside come alive than from the comfort of your luxury carriage? Travel with the UK's leading special trains operator.
All our excursions will feature lovingly restored coaches, and a selection of classes of travel, from Premier Dining, First and Standard classes. Premier dining on our day trips include a full english breafast and a four course dining on the return journey. All our First Class and Standard Class passengers will travel in refurbished Mark I or Mark II coaches and will have access to a buffet for the purchase of teas, coffees and light refreshments.

Similarly although we offer provisional timings as a guide your confirmed departure time will be advised with your seat numbers approximately 7 days before travel.
