Golden Arrow

The Bluebell Railway’s Golden Arrow Pullman dining train is the perfect setting for a special meal with friends or an intimate evening for two. With Pullman Cars, Christine and Fingall, the train recreates the fabulous Golden Arrow which once linked London and Paris with the style and panache which made it one of the most glamorous and famous trains in the world. On board you will enjoy fine food and wine served to the standards of yesteryear. Carriage Ashdown is also used in the Golden Arrow Dining Train set-this First Class carriage, although not a Pullman, is extremely comfortable and was originally built to convey passengers from Waterloo Station to the port of Southampton to catch the Trans Atlantic Liners. It is not as ornate as a Pullman carriage but still offers comfortable seats, a nice ambience and exactly the same service as is offered in Christine and Fingall.

The service departs from Sheffield Park Station and travels through the beautiful countryside of the Sussex Weald. We welcome children over the age of 5 onto the luncheon trains but these journeys are not suitable for children under 5 and any children on board need to be fully supervised and need to remain seated throughout the journey. Please note that Saturday evening trains are not suitable for children under the age of 14.
