Jubilee Bar

The Jubilee Bar began life as a standard Mark 1 Open Corridor coach. In 1970 it was converted into a bar car with an authentic bar salvaged from a public house in Leeds. To complement the Pullman carriages that it is often paired with, it was painted in mock-Pullman livery tones. Today, it serves as the perfect vintage venue for any occasion.

Built as a standard Mark1 Open Corridor coach, E4588 arrived on the Railway with most of its original interior removed. Rather than restoring the coach back to its original condition, the coach was converted into a bar car, painted in mock-Pullman livery to complement the Pullman carriages it is sometimes paired with, and fitted with an authentic bar salvaged from a public house in Leeds.

Named ‘The Jubilee Bar’  to commemorate the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, the coach can occasionally be seen on service trains on special operating days or for private hire events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and more.

Celebrate your special occasion amongst family and friends whilst you travel along the line through the beautiful Brontë countryside. As you board the Jubilee Bar carriage you can feel a true sense of heritage. It is the perfect way to make your day unique with elegance.

More information

The Jubilee Bar consists of two saloons.

One includes the bar where we can serve soft and alcoholic beverages to your guests. This area has standing room for around 15 – 20 people.

The second area can be left as an open space or furnished with tables and chairs to suit your preferences with space for around 24 guests. The saloons will be exclusive to you and your guests, no members of the public will be permitted to enter your privately hired carriage.

  • The Jubilee Bar coach accommodates up to 44 people, seating for 24 plus standing room for further 15 to 20 people.
  • The cost of the carriage includes a Day Rover Ticket for all your guests, therefore no additional tickets need to be purchased.
  • Everyone in your group must commence and end their journey at the same station.
  • The cost of drinks is additional to the cost of the hire.
  • Price includes a full day hire during the allotted timetable

If your party orders food with your booking, tablecloths will be provided at no extra charge. Additional decorative items such as flowers and table centres can be brought by event organisers.

The bar itself has four fully working hand pumps, meaning you can choose to have either one or up to four real ales available for your day. If you have a particular beer that you would like, please let this be known it when booking and, as long as we can obtain it from the brewery of your choice, we will be happy to provide it for you. The bar also stocks other items such as a wide variety of bottled ciders, lagers and, of course, wines. Soft drinks and bar snacks such as crisps and nuts will also be available.
