Welcome to Enthusiast Holidays                                                            


Last year should have been all about KENYA - but see "steam tours on hold..." We're still promoting the tours in FRANCE run by the Le Creusot 241P17 people - but they don't include SWITZERLAND in their itineraries this year - but BULGARIA, ERITREA and "Colorado in the Fall", are all on the back burner for the time being.


On the positive side, Enthusiast Holidays started life in 1975 as the "Magic of Steam in Poland" and so to celebrate its 40th anniversary, we are promoting a tour (run by the Wolsztyn Experience people) with Pt47 (or Ol49) and a TKt48, in August 2015, getting down to scenic Klodzko; and in 2016, a steam + "Classic Traction" based on Chabowka. See "tour programme" for the August 2015 details, and there will soon be a link here taking you to the full details of our trip planned for 2016.


Finally, we are planning a long weekend in China (Fuxin) this winter - probably late February/March - plus an optional extension to Taiwan for the Shay(s). It all depends on steam remaining at Fuxin, and in Taiwan, the Shays being serviceable, and the 70-odd km line being opened throughout - or at least, a substantial part of it - but we'll see! Click on this link for the provisional plan - no prices yet, but full details will be confirmed as they become available.
