During the summer months of the 1950s and early 1960s, British Railways ran many special excursion trains. These would take holidaymakers and day trippers to popular seaside or scenic destinations. These trains ran to and from cities and towns around the country as well as many northern mining and mill town communities in West Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire. Additional trains were timetabled to meet the peak demands during the "Wakes Weeks" holidays.

 

Some of these trains did carry special destination boards but with modellers’ licence you can have as many as you want. These boards are a scale eleven feet in length and are designed for fitting to Mark 1 carriages.

Rail Tour Specials

During the 1950s and 60s, the Stephenson Locomotive Society (SLS), the Locomotive Club of Great Britain (LCGB) and the Railway Correspondence & Travel Society organised many special trains and tours. These often visited lines that had just closed to passenger traffic or were due to close. This set will allow you with modellers’ license to recreate such a tour on your own railway.
