Gulflander, Timetables and Bookings
|Fondly referred to as the old `tin hare’, the Gulflander is one of the
world’s last great characters of rail travel and offers you a unique experience.
This historic little train takes you on a journey with a difference from remote Normanton to far flung Croydon through the tough and inhospitable Gulf Country.
The Gulflander only carries a small number of passengers, so there's always a friendly casual atmosphere on board, which is all part of the charm.
