Yorkshire Railways & Steam Trains


Richard Trevithick built the first ever steam train in 1804,

 but what makes this method of travel so magical?

Is it the relaxed speed that gives the passengers time to view the sceneries glide by?

Or is it the smells of the steam and sounds of the hissing emerging from the engine room?



We'll embark to find out on this tour to York and its surrounding areas:

Board The Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Train to enjoy a trip taking in scenic views

 and tranquil surroundings before enjoying a relaxing canal trip

 in the charming market town of Skipton, with a commentary from the very amusing,

 multi-talented comedian, Dave Spikey.



Enjoy a full day excursion through the moors, valleys, hills and villages

 that are scattered throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park,

 we'll stop at the pleasant market town of Appleby before boarding

 the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway which covers 73 miles of scenic views.



All that before winding down to explore the walled river side city of York,

 founded by the ancient romans, wander streets steeped in culture

 before rounding off with a visit to the magnificent National Railway Museum

which features the largest collection of railway antiques and objects in the world.
