MAINLINE STEAM TOUR PROGRAMME 2005


Welcome to the UK Steam Railtour pages. This is an unofficial list of scheduled steam-hauled excursions over Network Rail lines during 2005. 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 promoter for current information, as tours are often cancelled or amended at short notice. Some mainline photo charters may be excluded from the list at the request of the promoters.

Comments, updates, corrections (or criticism) are very welcome. Please email to: webmaster at uksteam.info (Note new address) or by Fax to 08701-640942. 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.
