"Massive respect to the workers and volunteers who keep this piece of history alive. The effort that goes into maintaining the trains, carriages, stations cannot be underestimated. You'll get the sights, smells and feeling that only a steam engine can give."

Alan H, Newcastle upon Tyne (TripAdvisor)
