Leger Holidays is offering customers the opportunity to board The Berliner train, to celebrate the bravery of those railway workers who manned one of the most important rail lines in modern history.

The tour, led by a specialist battlefield guide stationed in Germany during the Cold War, offers an insight into the line between Berlin and Hannover and this last British Military train which spent its life on the front line of the Cold War.

Highlights for guests joining the five-day break, which departs on May 10, include time in Berlin and a trip on a vintage carriage lead by a 1940s steam loco 03 1010 and a vintage East German Reichsbahn diesel.

Prices lead in at £399 per person including four nights' breakfast accommodation; joining points at either Birmingham, Florence or Folkestone Channel Tunnel; a specialist battlefield guide; a Second Class ticket on ‘The Berliner; and excursions.
