Sit back and enjoy the stunning picture views of the countryside from inside our beautiful heritage carriages while we steam towards Gloucester. Your journey starts at Maitland’s Railway Station, travelling on the North Coast line, paralleling The Bucketts range into Gloucester, where a shuttle bus will be waiting to take passengers into town.
