Nostalgic steam-hauled journey to the West Country
On Saturday 1 April, The Cathedrals Express will start out from Kettering and will take locals on a journey to visit either Bath or Bristol.
The train will depart from Kettering at around 07:00, hauled initially by a vintage diesel engine and will also call at Wellingborough (07:10), before making its way towards West London. From here, a ‘Black Five’ steam locomotive, 45407 The Lancashire Fusilier, will take over, heading out through the Kennet Valley and into Wiltshire. The train will pull in to Bath at approximately 13:10, giving passengers several hours to explore this lovely Georgian city, or if they wish they can stay on the train to Bristol (arrives 13:30).
After exploring their chosen city, passengers will re-join The Cathedrals Express at 16:30 in Bristol or 17:00 in Bath, when The Lancashire Fusilier will re-trace her steps back as far as West London, where diesel will once again take over. The Cathedrals Express will arrive back in Kettering at approximately 22:10 (Wellingborough at 22:00).
Tickets are available in all four classes ranging from Premium Standard offering complimentary tea and coffee, to those in Pullman Style Dining who will receive a champagne breakfast on the outward journey and a four or five course dinner upon the return journey.
