Steam Train Tours

Recall a bygone era of travel with steam train holidays. These vacation packages offer an enticing mix of modern and historical rail travel by combining excursions aboard thoughtfully restored heritage railways and long-distance trips on efficient contemporary lines. As you move between popular cities and charming towns, you will be fascinated by the trains themselves and the scenery through which they travel. 

The vast majority of trains around the globe have been converted to diesel or electric, making a trip aboard a steam train a truly memorable experience. A ride aboard the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad takes travelers into the heart of the San Juan Mountains on the longest narrow-gauge steam railroad in the United States. Traveling on the steam-powered Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad presents some of the most inspiring scenes in Colorado as the train travels between two historic mining towns through Animas River Canyon. The Essex Steam Train follows a route through rural New England, journeying through the heart of the Connecticut River Valley. The Summerville Steam Special showcases the lush mountains of Southern Tennessee and Northern Georgia, whereas the Tuckasegee Steam Train weaves through the Great Smoky Mountains along the Tuckasegee River. 

A steam vacation can even take travelers through the great countries of Europe and to more exotic locations like India and Australia. Explore the iconic sights of the Scottish Highlands aboard the Jacobite Steam Train or Germany’s Harz Mountains on the narrow-gauge Brocken Railroad. Watch beautiful Dutch scenery unfold aboard the Medemblik Steam Train. Marvel at the glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and vast meadows of Switzerland aboard the Furka Cogwheel Steam Railway and the Brienz Rothorn Railway. Uncover the beauty of the Himalayan Mountains on the ultra-narrow gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and travel aboard Australia’s most beloved steam railway, the Puffing Billy Railway.
