Santa special 2017

 

On Saturday 16 December we held our very popular Santa special.  This is getting quite a name for itself as word spreads and it gets busier each year.  We were very grateful to Northern for supplying us with a four carriage train as the extra capacity was definitely needed.  Santa and his helpers gave out gifts to all the children and other helpers served chocolates and mince pies to the adults.  The event was a huge success and has received much positive feedback.  We hope events like this will encourage more people to use the railway more in the future.
