MAINLINE STEAM TOUR PROGRAMME 2013


Welcome to the UK Steam Railtour pages. This is an unofficial list of scheduled steam-hauled excursions over Network Rail lines during 2013. The information is updated regularly, and is provided in good faith, but is not guaranteed accurate! No responsibility is accepted for any errors or omissions.

A very special thanks to all those who have contributed information - especially details of planned tours, train times, and updates on main line locomotives. Please keep sending it !


Note Scheduled Times are only available where the link [Times], [o-Times] or [p-Times] appears alongside the train name. Any other link eg "-" will always lead to a "no page" error.

Note This list does not currently include the regular steam hauled services operated by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway between Grosmont and Whitby. Contact the NYMR for further details.

Note Some special trains may not be shown until after the event, at the request of the promoter or operator.
