Truly a name to conjure up nostalgic holiday memories! So why not join our special train direct
from the convenience of your local station. The coaches date from the late 1950’s and
early 1960’s.
We take the Greater Manchester 'ghost line' through Denton station, the first of several routes rarely used by passenger trains. (Denton station is 'famous' for being served by one train a week in one
direction only)We then travel over the Cheshire Plain, and then take the 'Crewe Independents'
the freight routes' that avoid Crewe station. Its then down through Stafford and then its more
rarely used 'freight track' via Walsall, the beautiful run through Sutton Park to Castle Bromwich
and the 'Camp Hill' line avoiding Birmingham to aarive in Worcestershire and the ascent of
the notorious Lickey Incline. Our route continues with views over to the Cotswolds as we
pass through Cheltenham Spa and Gloucester, through Bristol to Somerset and the West
Country. Choose from 3 destinations:
– for a break of over 5 hours – a popular
tourist destination, with its revitalised quayside and great pedestrianised shopping centre.
abounds with heritage attractions, the majestic gothic cathedral, the Guildhall, The
Royal Albert Museum and the city’s medieval underground passages! Or stay on board for
the journey top those great seaside destinations of Dawlish (break of 4 hours) or Paignton (break
of 3.5 hours), and the famous ride through the red sandstone cliffs.

Helpful information about boarding stations

Our favourite fish & chip shop: Carlo's Catch, Nottingham Road, Spondon
Travelling the rail network for 21 years, a good hot meal is really welcomed after a hard days work. Spondon has a railway station, but few trains stop there. Yet for years the Green Express has started its heritage trains at this small station 3 miles from Derby. It may be an unusual place to start a 12 coach Charter Train from, but you can see why when you've sampled the fish & chips!


The friendly staff at Carlo's Catch, Nottingham Rd, Spondon.
