First Class Steam Train Ride & Exclusive Tour of the Line!

Would you like to know more about the history of the Dean Forest Railway? If yes, why not join us for a guided tour of the line with Ian Pope, author of numerous books covering the Forest of Dean, including the highly regarded Severn and Wye series.

The loco for your tour will be Didcot’s No. 1340 ‘Trojan’, and the tour will be held in the comfort of our BR(W) Inspection Saloon.

The tour will start from Norchard, proceeding to Lydney Junction when the loco will run round – an ideal opportunity to have a closer look at the loco on a rare visit away from Didcot. The tour will then continue to Parkend, where the loco will run round again before the train returns to Norchard.

Tickets available now, but spaces are limited!

Add a little something to your booking with our cream teas, afternoon teas, prosecco or bacon roll & a hot drink options, which will be available to collect from the café from 30 minutes before your departure time.

We regret that dogs (except assistance dogs) are not allowed to travel on this service.
