What can I expect?
It's all aboard the 12:35pm departure for a tasty Saturday or Sunday luncheon onboard a historic and beautifully restored steam train that'll be choo-chooing along the track whilst you tuck in. Just before 12:35 you'll be invited to board your train by the steward. The steam locomotive will be stoked up ready to go and the onboard waiting team will be on hand to show you to your table. The 'Moorlander' dining car has been beautifully restored and offers first class accommodation - right down to flower arrangements and linen table cloths. They don't do lunch by halves at this wonderful railway through the Churnet Valley, that's for sure! Your menu is very much a traditional meal, with a soup to start and roast beef with all the trimmings to follow. Dessert is home-made and rounded off with tea and coffee. All courses are served at your table, leaving you to chat and gaze out of the window at the ever-changing Churnet Valley scenery as you rumble gently along the railway tracks.We think riding the Churnet Valley Railway lunch train is the perfect weekend activity for all the family. A good, freshly-cooked meal combines with the glamour of the golden age of steam travel and stunning Staffordshire countryside views, to make for a tantalisingly tasty railway experience. All aboard the lunch time departure!
