There were lots of thrills and no spills at the Somerset & Dorset Railway at Midsomer Norton on Sunday when Santa was riding the train. Leaving his reindeer behind he travelled up the line behind Joyce the little steam engine and pushed at the back by Dennis the Diesel. He will be coming again to Midsomer Norton Station next week, Sunday 22nd accompanied by his elves bearing presents. This Sunday he was helped on to the train by one of his elves as seen on the photo.

The next event at the station is in March when there will be a class 26 Diesel on loan from the Gloucester and Warwick Railway.
