Spalding visit for Northern Belle – one of the world's 'poshest' steam trains

More news, no ads


One of the world’s ‘poshest’ steam trains will be calling into Spalding Railway Station en-route to a prestigious flower show.

The Northern Belle will be picking up passengers in Spalding at 9.40am on Friday, July 22, before heading up to Chester for the Royal Horticultural Society’s Tatton Park Flower Show.

And it will be champagne all the way for passengers from the moment they step on board the swanky 1930s-style umber and cream Pullman carriages.

Businessman David Pitts, who bought the train from the iconic Orient Express group for an undisclosed sum, said: “We like to think we’ll not only be taking our guests to Cheshire, but will also transport them back to the golden days of rail travel.

“Our carriages, with their luxuriously-upholstered chairs, hand-woven tapestries, marquetry, mosaics and murals, really are a throwback to the time when nothing was too good for passengers.

“So it’s great to be visiting stations like Spalding for the first time and giving more people the opportunity to experience the ultimate in luxury train travel.”

The train is scheduled to arrive back at Lincoln at 7.45pm, Sleaford at 8.15, Spalding at 8.50 and Peterborough at 9.20.

Fares for journeys start at £265. For further details, phone 01270 899681 or see www.northernbelle.co.uk
