Once in the Llangollen, the carriages are coupled up, and Peter – decked out in boiler suit and cap – drives the steam locomotive. Henry Cole joins chef Ben Mason in the kitchen, preparing a celebratory lunch for everyone to enjoy, seated in the luxurious surroundings of the Pullman dining car.

What our restorers have achieved is something truly extraordinary.’.
