The Shakespeare Express, England's fastest regular steam service, runs through metropolitan Birmingham and historic Stratford-upon-Avon via the scenic North Warwickshire line. The train completes two round trips from Birmingham each day, allowing great freedom to organise your day as you please. The first train leaves Birmingham at 10.35am, returning from Stratford-upon-Avon at 12.50pm, the same pattern repeating in the afternoon with trains from Birmingham at 2.35pm and Stratford at 4.50pm. Return and singles tickets are available from both destinations for any combination of trains. .

Vintage Trains also operates 'one-off' excursions, employing several types of steam locomotive, to a variety of destinations.
