Joyce, Our Sentinel steam locomotive gets into her stride despite very greasy rail conditions with the first of the 2019 season Santa Specials.

The footplate crew of Roger Warner, Andy Chapman and Matt Cornborough did a magnificent job of ensuring that Joyce ran faultlessly all day 

The newly installed steam heating system ensured that not only all the happy girls and boys and their families were toasty warm on their journey but so to were Santa and his helpers.

If you are thinking of bringing your family to see Santa we still have spaces on our trains running next Sunday, 8th December but if you are thinking of coming along on either the 15th or 22nd December booking is advisable as these seats on these trains are selling fast.
