An attentive Northern Belle steward will serve brunch and Bellini at your seat as the scenery rolls past the window on the outward journey.At Durham coaches will be waiting for the 20 minute transfer to Beamish. Once inside the huge site you make your way around, as you would have done in bygone days, by tram. Step off at Beamish Town which features beautifully restored old-fashioned gaslit shops, a bank, a village blacksmith, the fish and chip shop and the welcoming Sun Inn.If you're only moderately badass, you can do the 25k instead.
We take you on board the Viejo Expreso Patagónico, also known as “la Trochita”, mythical train of the Patagonia Argentina. Founded by the Welsh, between the mountain range and the desert in Patagonia, Esquel is a quiet city, the entrance to the National Park Los Alerces, in the province of Chubut.
On of the major attractions in the city is the Viejo Expreso Patagónico, a steam train dating back to the end of the XIX century, kindly called “la Trochita” (the small railway) due to its 75 cm-wide rails.
The efforts by supporters to save this less and less frequented railway line were crowned by success in 2014.
With the support of Slovak Rail, they were able to finish the renovation of the line's cogwheel equipment which had been out of use for a long time, as well as to complete the restoration of a steam cogwheel train dating from 1908, obtained in Romania and very similar to the original engines of the Tisovec railway which had been disposed of a long time ago.
A 300 acre site set amid the delightful rolling countryside of County Durham, it depicts northern life in past centuries.
