Is there a better way to start the morning than with a locally sourced traditional cooked breakfast. Well, there is, when it served at your table on board the Golden Arrow Pullman as you wind your way through the Sussex Weald from Sheffield Park to East Grinstead hauled by a vintage steam locomotive.

Upon arrival there is the opportunity to look round Sheffield Park station or to view the steam locomotive as it couples to the front of your train before it is time to board the Golden Arrow where our Stewards will show you to your seats. Following departure at 9:15 you will be served with a glass of Buck's Fizz, fruit juice or a specially prepared smoothie. As the Golden Arrow steams along the line you will be served granola followed by a selection of pastries accompanied by tea and coffee.

Arriving at East Grinstead you can watch, from the comfort of your seat, the steam locomotive run round the train ready to haul train back to Sheffield Park as your traditional cooked breakfast is being served, all cooked and prepared on board, followed by tea and coffee. During the return journey to Sheffield Park there will be time to enjoy the everchanging Sussex countryside whilst enjoying your breakfast in the surroundings of your immaculately restored period carriage.

Upon arrival back at Sheffield Park there is the opportunity to look round the station and museum, visit the shop to purchase a souvenir and stroll around SteamWorks! to view at close quarters some of the Railway's prized collection of historic steam engines and learn more about how steam locomotives work.

The Golden Arrow Pullman comprises of two 1920s Pullman Cars Christine and Fingall, and a 1950s First Class Dining carriage Sapphire, that was used on the Ocean Liner Express Trains from Waterloo to Southampton Docks. 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 transporting you back to the golden age of train travel.
