Twenty five years after the famous Settle and Carlisle route was saved, a luxurious train will take a majestic journey through Gloucester to mark the anniversary.
The Statesman will depart on March 29, stopping at Lydney, Chepstow, Gloucester to Cheltenham Spa, Ashchurch for Tewkesbury and stations to Cannock and Rugeley.
On April 5 it will depart from High Wycombe and head to Stafford.
Peter Watkinson, operations director for Statesman Rail, said: “This very special tour on board the popular and luxurious Statesman train is being operated to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the route being saved from closure and includes a unique journey over the entire majestic route of the Settle to Carlisle railway in all its spring glory – with great limestone peaks and deep valleys we travel over no fewer than 19 viaducts and through 12 tunnels on this masterpiece of Victorian engineering, including the famous Ribblehead Viaduct.”
