Why not upgrade to First Class to enjoy a meal in one of our compartments, finely decorated in it's own tartan, with vintage British Rail mirrors and luggage racks inside. Split your trip up with a visit to Boat of Garten to explore some fantastic walk trails or bring your bike on board to explore the great cycle routes in the area.

We had booked a first class carriage on Hogmanay and were not disappointed. It was a step back in time and wonderful, staff were very attentive and catered for our every need. Would definitely recommend!

Travelled on the Mince Pie Special 28.12.21 as a group of 8 including four grandchildren. The train was warm and clean. The catering staff were brilliant. The tea and coffee were lovely and the mince pies were warm and tasty. The journey was amazing through sparkling frosty countryside with a fantastic view of the Cairngorm Mountains. Highly recommended and good value for money. Well done the Strathspey Railway and its Volunteers and Employees!

We booked the afternoon tea service on the Strathspey steam railway as an extended family ranging from young children up to grandparents and a fantastic time was had by everyone. The staff were so accommodating and helpful. Really made the experience feel special. The food was lovely and good quality which makes a big difference to afternoon teas. Thick bread, proper clotted cream, decent selection of cakes and good coffee! They also provided a fabulous gluten free for my nephew - something that doesn’t happen very often according to my sister. The views were stunning and we were lucky with the weather. We saw a whole range of wildlife alongside the train including deer which we were thrilled about. It was a perfect way to relax and enjoy the last day of our holiday.

Visiting Aviemore for my girlfriends birthday and always love to spend the afternoon on the Strathspey Steam Railway, leaving from the heart of Aviemore through to Boat of Garten and then to Newtonmore which makes a lovely afternoon adventure travelling by steam! I decided to treat the girlfriend to afternoon tea aboard the service which was delicious, little bit pricey but very much worth it. You get a selection of small sandwiches, scone with clotted cream & jam, then an assortment of cakes, not forgetting unlimited tea and coffee whilst taking in the beautiful countryside. The staff on board the train were great, so happy & friendly, willing to make your trip something special. Its lovely travelling back in time on the steam railway being in an old wooden carriage, so much better than todays railway. It was great to relax, unwind and spend some quality time as a couple enjoying afternoon tea and some fantastic views!
