THE ATLANTIC COAST EXPRESS


Saturday 10 August 2019

We are delighted to announce one of the most ambitious main line steam tours with 35028 ‘Clan Line’ in recent times.

We begin the day with a fast journey along the main line with which this splendid locomotive is best known, from London Waterloo to Exeter via Salisbury, the Blackmore Vale, Yeovil Junction and of course the famous Honiton Bank.

We take a break of nearly three hours in Devon’s proud county town, calling both at Exeter Central (which is right in the heart of the city, close to the magnificent Exeter Cathedral) and Exeter St David’s.

Departure is from Exeter St David’s, following GWR track via Taunton to Bristol Temple Meads.

Our route is then via Bath Spa, following the winding Avon Valley through Bradford-upon-Avon. From Westbury we climb again before descending to rejoin our outward route at Wilton. We then retrace our outward route up the West of England Main Line.

Forays to the west with 35028 ‘Clan Line’ are always in great demand, so don’t leave it too long to book, to avoid the possibility of disappointment.

All timings are provisional and intended only as a guide.
