‘Royal Windsor Steam Express’ to return in 2020

Regular steam operation will return to London Waterloo in 2020 after Steam Dreams confirmed its ‘Royal Windsor Steam Express’ will run again next summer. 

Operating every Tuesday until September 3, the trains consist of three one-way, steam-hauled trips from Waterloo to Windsor & Eton Riverside and an evening dining circuit known as the ‘Sunset Steam Express’. 

LNER ‘B1’ 4-6-0 No. 61306 Mayflower arrives at Chinnor on June 26 with empty stock for the following day’s Steam Dreams charter to Weymouth. The train was the first railtour to operate from the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway through to the main line. PHIL MARSH

Trains return diesel-hauled to London, with passengers travelling back at their leisure by scheduled South Western Railway services.
