Brand New 2017

This is a unique opportunity to take a trip behind the majestic steam locomotive, the Union of South Africa which will be running on the heritage Nene Valley Railway exclusively for Just Go! Holidays customers on Tuesday 19th September. Built in 1937, and briefly named Osprey during the 1980s and 1990s, this iconic locomotive is one of only six surviving Gresley A4s. She also carried Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Phillip for the official re-opening of the Borders Railway in 2015. Enjoy a nostalgic journey through the picturesque Nene Valley, taking us back to the heyday of the golden age of steam.

Union of South Africa Steam Train Journey
We board our train behind the magnificent locomotive Union of South Africa for a picturesque, steam hauled round trip journey on the Nene Valley Railway from Wansford to Peterborough. With a journey time of approximately 75 minutes, we’ll travel along the beautiful Nene Valley, through a picturesque landscape of water meadows, arable farmland and a country park. The railway has featured in many films and TV series including the James Bond films Octopussy and Goldeneye.

We also visit Cambridge where we have free time to explore at leisure. This fascinating university city is full of beautiful architecture, leafy green meadows and majestic college buildings, the most famous being King’s College Chapel on the banks of the River Cam.


We’ll stay at a well-appointed hotel conveniently located for our excursions. The comfortable rooms are en suite and other facilities include a bar and restaurant.
