The website is currently being updated to incorporate a Mainline Railtour section to include information and booking forms for the upcoming one way stock moves with 40145 and a West Coast Railway Class 37, to and from the East Lancashire Railway.

These are planned for the 14th September 2018, Carnforth to Bury ELR and the 16th September, Bury ELR to Carnforth. Both are in conjunction with the joint planned CFPS and ELR Flying Scotsman Bury to Holyhead tour on the 15th September 2018.

I am currently designing online booking forms for both CFPS Members and General Public. These are for those who wish to pay for their bookings via a direct transfer to the CFPS Bank Account. Full instructions will be included on the web page once completed.

There will also be the facility to download a PDF version of the booking form for those who wish to pay for their bookings via cheque or postal order.

Please can you NOT email any committee member of the CFPS regarding your booking for the railtour. Only bookings received via the Website or by post, using the correct booking forms, will be accepted. There will be a fair and strict first come first served seat allocation, with CFPS members given priority over the general public on the allocation of seats.

Please also note tickets for both of the one way stock positioning moves will be an email booking confirmation for online bookings. This will contain your booking reference and your seat allocations. The email address supplied when completing your online booking will be the address used for this purpose.

Postal bookings will receive a return letter that will include the booking reference and seat allocations.

Many thanks
