Luxury train operator visits Kent

The luxury train service ‘The Northern Belle’ has visited Kent today, on a trip from London Victoria to Folkestone and back to London.

The trip, which costs around £250 per person, offers a fine dining experience in highly luxurious ‘Pullman’ style coaches, whilst enjoying the scenic Kentish countryside.

This is second time the ‘Northern Belle’ train has visited Kent this year; it previously came to the county in March, when it was hauled by a steam locomotive.

Today’s tour was powered by a pair of Class 57 Diesel Locomotives.
