A decadent 'black tie' experience which you'll never forget! - Flying Scotsman Golden Arrow Gala Dinner

Friday 26th August and Saturday 27th August

These very special services will be hauled by the magnificent Flying Scotsman which will be visiting the Bluebell Railway from 17th August until 5th September 2022.

Enjoy a champagne reception with canapes on arrival from 5.30pm, then take your seats to depart at 6.30pm from Sheffield Park Station. Relax and take in the ambience as you meander through the Sussex countryside, savouring your exclusive 5 course silver service meal on a 3½ hr journey up and down the line.

With Pullman Cars, 'Christine' and 'Fingall' and 1st Class carriage 'Sapphire', the train recreates the fabulous Golden Arrow which once linked London and Paris with the style and panache which made it one of the most glamorous and famous trains in the world. On board you will enjoy fine food and drinks served to the standards of yesteryear.

'Christine' and 'Fingall' evoke the heady days of the 1920/30s with their unique wooden wall panel Marquetry and plush seating. 'Sapphire' hails from the 1950s and provides equally comfortable and plush surroundings, being built to convey 1st Class passengers from Waterloo to board Transatlantic liners at Southampton in the glory days of ocean travel.
