Our first class trains run all through the year. Enjoy a 4-course meal on our Saturday luncheon train, a traditional 4-course Sunday luncheon service and a luxurious 6-course Saturday evening feast on board 'The Charnwood Forester'.

Your train will normally pause on Swithland viaduct with breath taking views over the reservoir.

For a very different night out, try one of our very popular murder mystery dining trains and in November and December look out for our Christmas trains. For more detailed information on what we offer and how to book, please visit or phone our Booking Office on 01509 632323
