This steam special starts from Linlithgow, calls at Edinburgh then heads south to Carstairs and along the West Coast Main Line to Carlisle. The train then takes the scenic Settle & Carlisle Railway and runs along Airedale through Skipton and Leeds to York. Passengers should have a few hours spend the afternoon exploring the ancient walled city which has many attractions including the Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre, National Railway Museum, The Castle Museum and The Shambles, a medieval shopping street.
The train returns diesel-hauled along the East Coast Main Line through Newcastle.

A1 Class No. 60163 Tornado will haul the train southbound over Beattock Summit and the Settle & Carlisle Railway. 60163 was built in Darlington and completed in 2008, the first main-line steam locomotive built in Great Britain since 1961.
