Worldwide Tours by Steam Train
Our diverse programme of world tours visits the earth’s four largest continents. An eclectic mix of countries ensures that there is somewhere of interest for everyone. Travel by train provides unique opportunities to reach parts of the world not usually available to visitors.
To Asia for steam – Java is an Indonesian island and a popular location since it contains so many operating steam locomotives plus a fascinating variety of unusual attractions. India is rich in culture and heritage and has many reminders of the British Raj, not least its Hill Stations and narrow gauge steam railways.
To Africa for something very different – Eritrea is a rarely visited friendly country strategically placed on the Red Sea and has rebuilt its only railway line into the rugged mountains of the interior, operating some ancient steam locomotives.
To North America for scenic beauty – New England in the Fall, the most spectacular display of autumn colours on Earth is legendry and is combined with U.S. train travel and visits to heritage railways.
To South America for Andean splendour – Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, (Galapagos Islands extension), Peru, and Uruguay provide an ABC of amazing adventures, brilliant backdrops, colourful culture, diverse delights, exciting environments, fascinating flora & fauna, gourmet gastronomy, and more.
