The Cumbrian Coast Express | Departing Crewe and Preston

Join The Manchester Area Association on a day out with a journey by steam train.

What is included

Our journey will combine the scenic grandeur of the Cumbrian Fells with the exposed Cumbrian coastline that skirts the western edge of the Lake District.

We journey down the West Coast Main Line to Carlisle, hauled by an electric locomotive. We then change to a steam engine to enjoy a tour from Carlisle back to Carnforth via the Cumbria Coast.

We return from Carnforth to London behind the electric locomotive once again.
