This useful guide highlights the superb variety of different private steam railways that can be found all across the UK.
Most of the railways featured in this unique programme specialise in recreating the authentic ‘feel’ of a particular period in railway history with atmospheric stations and authentic liveried locos. So it’s not hard to see why, after some very humble beginnings, the multitude of private steam lines in the UK now spearhead the family leisure market challenging the established ‘day outs’ offered by stately homes and theme parks.
