The Golden Arrow Breakfast

Morning Silver Service Breakfast Train

Is there a better way to start the morning than with a 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 9:30 you will be served with a glass of Buck’s Fizz, juice or a specially prepared smoothie. As the Golden Arrow steams its way through Horsted Keynes and Kingscote, granola served with yoghurt and fruit followed by a selection of pastries and breads will be served 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 at 11:35 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 ‘Christine’ and ‘Fingall’ both of which evoke the heady days of the 1920/30s with their unique wooden wall panel Marquetry and plush seating.


We also welcome ‘Pullman Car 54’, built in 1923, originally built as a Kitchen Third by Claytons, was rebuilt in 1937 as a Parlour Brake. It is a historic vehicle, as one of the first three ‘K’-type Pullmans. Returning to service in 2024 following restoration and adaptation at our very own Carriage and Wagon Department to accomodate wheelchair passengers, the first of its kind.
