April 23rd 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the first tour ever undertaken by Golden Eagle's Founder and President, Tim Littler.
From a very early age, Tim had a huge passion for trains. At just 15 years old, he successfully operated his first rail tour, carrying 350 passengers from Manchester Exchange station to Edinburgh, stopping at Carlisle and Waverley Route along the way. Three other tours followed in quick succession – Manchester to Holyhead, Kings Cross to Newcastle and St Pancras to Altrincham. The latter two of which included the use of the 'Flying Scotsman' locomotive.
