The Mid Cheshire Rail Users Association (MCRUA) has a reputation for well managed and popular special trains. This includes Diesel hauled Railtours and Steam Specials along the Mid Cheshire Line.
With the experience of organising special excursions for over 25 years, you are assured of an excellent trip.
Our last Diesel hauled Railtour, The Settle & Carlisle Express ran on Wednesday 11th September 2013 when the railtour headed for Carlisle via the Settle and Carlisle Railway and returned to Mid Cheshire via the Cumbrian Coast.
This scenic tour started at Hooton and called at Chester, most Mid-Cheshire line stations and Stockport.
The route was then via Bolton, Blackburn, Clitheroe, Hellifield and the Settle and Carlisle line. We returned along the Cumbrian coast through St. Bees, Sellafield, Ravenglass and Grange-over-Sands to Preston and Manchester.
The Railtour was a great success with the train arriving at Carlisle on time and returning its passengers home on time.
The Railtour was ran in association with Compass Tours.
