Clan Line steam locomotive to haul Steam Dreams Christmas tours in December

Steam Dreams has confirmed to RailAdvent that SR Merchant Navy No. 35028 Clan Line will be carrying special Santa offers and an evening tour from London Victoria in December.

Clan Line will carry the special trains on December 14, while B1 61306 Mayflower will carry the trains on December 13, 20 and 22.

Steam Dreams will host Santa’s first trips from London in 30 years. Three departures will depart from London Victoria at 9.30am, 12.00pm and 2.15pm.

In the evening, the Christmas Steam Express circles south and west London, crossing the Thames six times on its journey.

A number of other tours will be run by Steam Dreams, taking passengers to Christmas markets as the big day approaches.

David Buck, President of Steam Dreams, said: “We are delighted to welcome Clan Line to our Christmas roster – the prestigious locomotive always draws crowds and we are delighted to have it part of our new Christmas Express voyages.” Buck added “With tickets from £35 per adult or a special four-journey fare for £119 – the journeys offer an accessible opportunity to travel with Clan Line on the mainline.”
