TICKETS are still available in all sections of The Evening Star's special train from Felixstowe and Ipswich to the north east in July.

The train, to York, Durham – for the world famous Beamish museum, and Newcastle on Tyne will give people a full day out.

York is one of the world's great historic cities with a wealth of tourist attractions – and visitors should have up to seven hours to discover its glories.

Beamish is one of the best-known and most successful museums in Britain, recreating a northern town in the early years of the 20th century.

And Newcastle is one of the most bustling communities in the country – which has seen a major rebirth of the area along the River Tyne.

The Evening Star Northumbrian is being run in association with East Anglian-based Nenta Traintours.

Exact timings will be published about two weeks before the trip on July 19, but provisional plans suggest the train will leave Felixstowe at about 7am and return at approximately 10.45pm.

It will also pick up passengers at Trimley, Derby Road, Westerfield, Ipswich, Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds.

Among the most popular tickets on the train are the Premier Class seats – which include all meals served at your seat: a full English breakfast, a light lunch (or packed lunch for those getting off at York) and a full evening dinner.

These cost £104.50 for adults and £89.50 for children – and are usually the first to sell-out on any railtour.

The train also has two seat-only options: standard class at £43.75 adults and £21.75 for children and first-class at £58.75 adults and £36.75 for children.

Tickets can be booked by phone on 01692 406152 between 9am and 9.30pm seven days a week.

They can also be booked by post from: Nenta Traintours, Railtour House, 10 Buxton Road, North Walsham, NR28 0ED or by e-mailing: enquiries@nentatraintours.co.uk
