The Churchill Jolly Fisherman Fish and Chips

‘My dear friends, this is your hour.’ – Winston Churchill, 8 May 1945


Take part in our 75th Anniversary of VE Day celebrations onboard our Saturday evening ‘Jolly Fisherman’ train hauled by visiting LMS locomotive Royal Scot.

Be sure to arrive at Wansford in good time to browse around our wartime vehicle and militaria demonstrations.  The visiting troops will be happy to show you round the various displays before check-in opens at 6 pm.  The decorated station comes alive with atmosphere as popular wartime songs and dancing music will be playing while Royal Scot simmers in the platform.

At 7pm the whistle sounds and our train departs for Peterborough, pausing to pick up passengers joining at Overton.  Then relax in your seat and enjoy drinks from the bar as our onboard team serve a traditional fish and chip supper at your seat.  There is plenty of time to enjoy the scenery as we run along the Nene Valley during two round trips of line.  We return to Wansford at around 9.30 pm.

Don’t forget to enter into the spirit of the occasion by dressing up in forties attire to celebrate the night away, and we promise – no spam!


Price is per person - menu choice must be chosen at the time of booking.
