docspics photos images pictures Phil Brown European Rail tours US and Canadian Railway travel holidays special steam excursions A great steam heritage line and offers luxury Pullman coach dining trains Travelling by train always seems a pleasure, especially if through wonderful scenery either in England, Scotland, Wales or on holiday in the rest of the railways of Europe! The railway trip involves seeing or travelling behind a 'real' steam locomotive in action and there is nothing like the sight and sounds of a steam train to invoke feelings of nostalgia in some of us, even more luxury by having a special trip out on a steam dining train!
