Join us for this unique journey along one of
the most beautiful and scenic Mainlines in Great Britain, with an ex LMS
Jubilee Class Locomotive.
from Manchester Victoria, we tackle the steep 1 in 52 gradients of
Miles Platting Bank, before snaking "around the houses" towards Guide
Bridge and Woodley. Once we have taken water, we continue our journey
along via Romiley and New Mills Central toward the original Midland
Mainline at New Mills Junction. From here we climb towards Chinley, pass
the junction for the Buxton line, and top the bank at Cowburn Tunnel,
before descending at high speed through the stunningly scenic Hope
Valley through Edale, Bamford and Hathersage. We rejoin the Midland
Mainline at Dore and Totley before dropping down into the old Midland
Railway station of Sheffield.
