Reasons for trip

On Saturday 8th December I had the pleasure of going on the Santa Special with my Grandson Freddie( 22months) and his Mum. We booked online for the 12.30 train ride which saved the hassle of turning up to find the train was full and having to wait (never a good idea with toddlers). Once boarded we sang Christmas songs till Santa appeared, he had presents and a few words for all the children. After the trip (about 30mins) we returned to the Station where we had a hot drink & Christmas pies in some converted rail cars. All in all a great outing for children and adults alike especially if like my Grandson they are Thomas the Tank Engine fans! Tickets were £6.50 adult & £8.50 for children.
