MAINLINE STEAM TOUR PROGRAMME 2019
|This week|

Welcome to the UK Steam Railtour pages. This is an unofficial list of scheduled steam-hauled excursions over Network Rail lines during 2019. 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. Always check with the rail tour operator for current information, as tours are often cancelled or amended at short notice.

Comments, updates, corrections (or criticism) are very welcome. Please email to: webmaster at uksteam.info. 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. [TimesA] include links to archived RTT data with actual running times. Any other link eg "-" will always lead to a "no page" error.

Note This list does not currently include the regular steam hauled serices 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.

Note The symbol § denoites steam leg is expected to have diesel assistance.
