DEE VALLEY RAILWAY

On Train Dining Services

Railway travel offers countless pleasures, but best off all must be dining aboard a steam train.  Back in the 1950s, travellers could take their seats in the restaurant cars of crack expresses like the 'South Yorkshireman' and the 'Master Cutler'.

Today, on Britain's longest main line steam railway, passengers can reserve a table and be wined and dined in similar style, savouring sumptuous first class fare with every detail catered for.  So, whether you're old or young, climb aboard, relax, and prepare yourself for an experiance without equal.  

Here you will find details about all our first class services, our griddle cars, our thrilling murder mystery trains, or even how to charter your own private carriage or train.  Click on the links below.
