J515 Updates from the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre
Rare Arnott's biscuit van restored
Vintage Trains has released an update on their diesel and steam locomotives as well as upcoming tours.
The 2021 railtour programme is proving a huge success with tickets selling well. A mix of diesel seaside trains and mainline steam expresses means Vintage Trains has an appealing programme for enthusiasts and families.
A waiting list is now in operation for single seat bookings as Vintage Trains looks to the removal of social distancing rules.
Family tickets are sold out on the Skegness, Llandudno and Scarborough Seaside Express trains, with availability on the Weston Super Mare train at the time of writing.
Both anniversary trains have proven popular, with Pullman class sold out on the Return to Steam 50th Anniversary Special, with space remaining on the SLS Special.
