The North Yorkshire Moors Railway is inviting little ones to join Santa and his special helpers on a magical adventure aboard the Santa Express, which will take passengers on a festive journey on selected dates this December*.

 

Departing from Pickering, Grosmont and Whitby Stations, these Santa Specials bring Christmas to life and give children the chance to meet the legendary man himself in his grotto on board the train. They will be able to tell him what they would like to open on Christmas morning - providing they’ve managed to keep themselves off the naughty list this year!

 

Children will also receive a fun activity sheet with colouring pencils and a juice drink when they visit Santa – not forgetting an age appropriate present along with a North Yorkshire Moors Railway Santa hat!

 

Brand new for 2016, passengers travelling from Grosmont will be able to experience an extra Christmas cracker, the chance to meet a small herd of real reindeer (five baby reindeer calves) that will be visiting Grosmont station while Santa temporarily swaps reindeer travel for that of a steam train.

 

The festive round trip lasts approximately one hour from the departure station and each Santa Express Ticket includes a delicious mince pie and a warming hot drink for everyone with a little alcoholic tipple for the adults. It’s sure to be a Christmas they’ll never forget!

 

Chris Price, General Manager at North Yorkshire Moors Railway, said: “We look forward to the Santa Specials every year as they always bring so much joy to our younger visitors and to see them leaving the railway with beaming smiles on their faces always makes our Christmas too.

 

“Christmas at the railway is a special time of year and we can’t wait to see lots of families joining us to experience the festivities.”
