STEAM Dreams has unveiled its programme of tours for the second half of 2018 and given advance notice of three attractive steam-hauled landcruises for 2019.
Highlight of the programme is a nine-day tour of Scotland on May 9-17 employing LNER favourites Nos. 60103 Flying Scotsman and No. 61306 Mayflower.
The ‘A3’ is booked to handle the first two days, powering from York to Edinburgh and Edinburgh to Inverness via the Highland Main Line, before the ‘B1’ takes over for day trips to Dunrobin Castle and Kyle of Lochalsh.
It then joins forces with ‘Scotsman’ to double-head over the HML to Glasgow, with Mayflower continuing to Fort William. Day 7 will see the ‘B1’ leave the West Highlands and head south via Beattock to Penrith, giving passengers a day in the Lake District, before the final leg back to Euston on Day 9.
Various optional coach trips are also planned, including visits to Skye, Mull or Iona, Loch Ness and the Lake District.
