We ran four railtours in the course of 2015 and likewise in 2016; thank you for supporting these outings!
We continue to formulate plans for future railtours, taking into account the various restrictions imposed by weekend engineering work and the availability of traincrew.
Details of, and booking-instructions for, our future railtours will appear here when they are available; when that happens, those on our emailing list & our followers on Twitter will receive notifcation.
Meanwhile, to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to make bookings, no bookings or reservations will be accepted nor entertained for a railtour until its full details and booking-form have been published.
Our outline plans include railtours on the following dates:
Saturday 13 May 2017: charter from Hastings to Fawley, with an allocation of seats available to HDL; details to follow.
Saturday 27 May 2017: HDL railtour to Oxford by a circular route—outward via Reading, return on the recently opened Chiltern route via Bicester Village and then through Greenford. Expected time in Oxford is from 1130 to 1730 approx.
Saturday 1 July 2017: HDL railtour to Cleethorpes via Lincoln
Saturday 30 September 2017: Possible HDL railtour to the Mid-Hants Railway?
Until properly advertised, these outline plans are unavoidably subject to cancellation, modification or change of date.
It is a condition of holding a ticket for any outing on our train that passengers abide by the letter and spirit of our Code of Conduct.
We can recommend a dip into the HDL Railtour archive, which contains details of all the previous “days out” which HDL has operated to date.
