The Talisman

Recalling a popular East Coast express train name, ‘The Talisman’ offers a wonderful day of high speed heritage rail travel.

The outward journey is steam hauled down the East Coast Main Line, promising bursts of 90mph as Tornado charges out of London en route to Durham and Newcastle. The return journey

will be hauled by the Deltic diesel locomotive D9009 Alycidon, whose engines will roar as the train speeds back towards the capital.

DURHAM AND NEWCASTLE
Passengers travelling to the beautiful city of Durham can visit the castle and cathedral which were used as a location in the filming of the Harry Potter movies, or else enjoy time by the River Wear. An off train coach tour to Beamish is an option from Durham. Those travelling on to metropolitan Newcastle have the chance to explore the amazing regenerated waterfront with its famous views of the bridges and many shops, bars and restaurants.

BEAMISH (£25) – Make your day full of nostalgia by booking your off train excursion to Beamish. Experience a real sense of your past, and discover what life was like in North East England in the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Beamish is an award winning living, working museum, set in 300 acres of beautiful Durham countryside. Costumed folk bring to life the Town, Pit Village, Home Farm and Pockerley Old Hall. Experience how the Industrial Revolution transformed agricultural life in the region. The buildings you see at Beamish have been brought, brick by brick, from around the region and rebuilt to give visitors a real sense of history.

This tour is promoted by The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust with UK Railtours acting as ticket agents. All profits will go towards keeping Tornado on the main line in future years.
