The Watercress line
Celebrate our 150th year with us and let the train take the strain as you sit back, relax and travel through the heart of the English countryside. Whether you are taking a trip down memory lane or creating new ones, it’s the perfect way to unwind and experience the nostalgic sights, sounds and smells of steam travel from a bygone age.
Our fares give you all day unlimited travel, so you can enjoy the slower pace of life as you explore each of our four period stations along the ten mile route, the engineering workshops and the nearby towns all on one ticket.
We run steam and heritage diesel locomotives throughout the year, with fantastic special events, Sunday lunch and fine dining trains and our famous real ale trains; for these advance bookings are either recommended or essential and they can all be booked here online. We welcome group visits, who often enjoy lunch or a cream tea on the train, and have a wide range of Railway Experience days that make very special gifts.
