Steam Trains and Tourist Railways

The tours in this brochure that feature steam haulage are almost exclusively based on either visits to preserved railways or the operation of steam locomotives on national or private railways purely for tourist purposes. If, despite our best efforts, a steam locomotive is unavailable on the tour day due to non-completion of repairs/overhauls, breakdown or other factors such as fire bans, a train may be cancelled or diesel hauled.

Our limit of liability to you will be to refund any costs we can recoup from operators resulting from such cancellation/non provision. We may not receive refunds from some operators in such circumstances. You agree that the non provision of a steam locomotive or cancellation of any sort of special train, or scheduled train on private or preserved railways will not be considered grounds for cancellation by you and normal cancellation charges will apply.
