September 2004, Hungary

Just a short note to you to say thanks for another great Hungarian Tour. The minor problems and rough edges were more than compensated for by the superb traction and track covered, and not least by the excellent company of all the tour participants over the five days of travel. Mercia must be congratulated on a job well done in difficult circumstances. Looking forward to next years hoped for Ukrainian extravaganza, lets hope it comes off.

September 2003, Hungary

This is just a short note to thank you and your colleagues for another excellent tour in Hungary. I can only express my appreciation of all the hard work that must have gone on 'behind the scenes' for everything to run so smoothly, and look forward to a similar success next year.

I'd just like to say that the Saturday Tour was one of the best tours I have ever been on (and I've been on a few!!) There was a great atmosphere on board and no petty griping about not getting this engine and not doing that piece of track. The beer was good and the crac even better. Well done Mercia. I will be back.

A big thank you to the Mercia lads for what must rank as their best two Belgium tours, so far.

What an interesting weekend for those of us in Belgium. In particular the Saturday tour which produced two bonus gronks from the PFT preserved pool and some bonus track in the form of the stub of line 98 which even withered the Mercia crew who didn't know we were going down it!!
Stuart Clarke

Just wanted to say thank you for organising two excellent tours last weekend. The Fatboys and Guests enjoyed themselves so much they are threatening to come on some more tours. Please pass our thanks to everyone at Mercia Charters.

...thought I should drop a line to record my thanks to you and the rest of the Mercia team for a superb pair of tours last weekend. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences (as I suspect did everyone aboard) - and praise must be given to all those who put so much hard work into ensuring that all went well on the two days. Thanks again and we shall be certainly on for the weekend in late June!
Robin Addison

Just a little note to thank you all for putting so much effort into the tours. The March tours made for a superb weekend away and I'm sure it won't be long before you have to add an extra coach for all of us desperate neds to squeeze in. Keep up the good work,
John Thompson

Gentlemen (and to the ladies who also worked like slaves on the day), Just a quick e.mail to thank you all most sincerely for all of the effort in making sure that last Saturday's Belgian tour was a day to remember for all the right reasons. Everything seemed to go as planned - we basically ran to time, the right engines seemed to appear and pleased the masses and even the buffet did not run out of beer entirely! Talking to the punters on the way back on Sunday they had nothing but praise for the way in which Mercia operated the train.
