Tours which go ahead will see social distancing and other safety measures in place, such as reduced passenger numbers, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) worn by staff and increased cleaning onboard the train.

Tornado Railtours are doing their best to reschedule people who were booked on tours postponed due to COVID-19 to new dates in 2020 where possible.
