Did that last year and had the Pullman dining experience. Steam train was the Tornado.
Champagne breakfast and 5 course meal on the way back superb :D

I was driving down Beane Road this morning just as the Steam train arrived. The front stopped at the bridge so we could see it quite clearly, a very impressive sight! I saw many people taking pictures.

I was quite surprised to find this train on platform 2 this morning instead of my usual 0810 to Stevenage. What a wonderful sight...I was only slightly jealous of the folk on board with their champagne breakfast!

Lots of older gentleman hanging around Bullsmill/Stapleford at about 8 am today, I assume they were Trainspotters.
