The steam-hauled itinerary takes passengers via Wolverhampton, then on past Cosford to Shrewsbury, before reaching historic Chester city.

During the stay in Chester, 34046 ‘Braunton’ will have been watered and serviced ready for the next stage of the journey, via Beeston Castle to Crewe.

There passengers say farewell to steam, and a UK rail tours train will take them back home via Stafford and Rugby.
