Thanks to all who joined us on our recent trip to Wembley.
WWe’ve been asked by a number of people if we’ll be running this summer. With the uncertainty regarding future strikes, and the fact in 14 years of running trains, we’ve never cancelled one, we will be waiting until a resolution is reached before announcing any 2022 dates.
The lead time of a charter train is approx 2 months, so the risk of a strike being called 2 weeks in advance makes it impossible to organise a train with any degree of certainly. We of course hope the dispute is resolved as soon as possible and look forward to welcoming you all on board again very soon.
Retro Railtours have been operating day trip charter trains to a wide variety of Great British destinations since 2008. In the past decade, we have travelled to all parts of the Great British rail network, visiting seaside resorts, cities and special events. Past destinations include The Lake District, Edinburgh (for the Edinburgh Festival), Southend (for Southend Airshow), Canterbury and Bath Spa.
We use classic British Rail carriages, with padded seats and full buffet facilities - which are all too often missing from modern service trains. Most of our trains also feature our luxury silver service Premier Dining service. Our aim is to take you back to the Golden Age of rail travel, where you enjoy the journey as much as the destination!
We look forward to welcoming you on board!
