Just posted on the UK Railtours website are details of the above tour, the itinerary for which is similar to outing/s previously run under the title "Solent and Sarum"..... http://www.ukrailtours.com/product/the-wessex-express/ Previous MNLPS statements have foreshadowed the possibility the there might be more outings in the post-overhaul era that could be more financially accessible to the hoi-polloi than perhaps was formerly the case when such a large proportion of Clan Line's work seemed to be committed to Belmond outings, and its very pleasing to see that this now seems to be happening. The "something-more-ambitious-than-the-Surrey- Hills" concept is great, particularly as it seems to fit quite neatly into the span of daylight hours prevailing around mid-November, when so many other excursions necessarily feature so much of their return legs either partially or totally within the hours of darkness. And sensible start and finish times will certainly work well for those like me who will be travelling from the provinces to join the train. So shed-loads of praise for those who have devised this outing. I hope it gets the lots-of-support that it deserves and turns out to be a massive success financially. Enough, maybe, to become a regular offering in the same way as BBP is for its more well-heeled clientele. I do hope so.
