Christmas and New Year


Christmas and steam trains were made for one another, so this December treat the family to some of the magic.


Take the Santa Special before Christmas

  • A 25-minute return journey in a festively decorated steam train, on a railway that is almost 100 years old.
  • walk through the Magic Tunnel to meet Santa, and children receive a quality present
  • Hot punch and mince-pies in Dobbers buffet
  • Now running additionally on Monday 22nd & Tuesday 23rd December, to keep up with demand!


Or have some New Year Cheer

In the quiet days between Christmas and New Year, Santa will be having a well-earned rest, but the seasonal steam train and the hot refreshments in the buffet will still await. Lots of people make it asocial occasion, meeting up with family or friends they haven't seen for a while.


Wednesdays are special

The Wednesdays before Christmas are ideal for parties of little ones, and on group bookings we offer one extra Adult ticket for every 10 accompanied children. Wednesday is also a good day for parents or grandparents to bring pre-school little ones for a quiet word with Santa.


Come and shop

The railway shop at Page's Park station has a great selection of Thomas the Tank Engine and Chuggingtons products, and much more besides. Open on all railway operating days.

Customers with disabilities are given priority parking at Page's Park station. There is level access to the station and buffet buildings, including an adapted toilet. The platforms are reached by a gentle upward slope. Ramp access is provided for the wheelchair accommodation on the train, and can be offered to anyone who may have difficulty with the step across from platform to train. Please ask your Guard for assistance.

For those with very small children, there are changing facilities in Dobbers buffet toilet, and high chairs are available in the refreshment area.

If you book online, you will be sent a confirmation by email shortly afterwards. If you are able to print this, please bring along a hard copy on your day of travel, as proof of purchase. If you do not have a printer available, please ensure on arrival that you have the confirmation document visible on the screen of your phone, tablet or laptop.

There is a £5 charge for any subsequent alterations to bookings, or for issue of replacements for tickets lost or left at home.

We cannot guarantee that seats will be available on later trains, if you miss your booked departure, nor will we make a refund if any member of your party fails to appear on the booked date. 

Please try to arrive at least 30 minutes before your departure time, especially if you have very young or elderly members in your party. Remember that the roads can be very slow at this time of year, due to weather conditions and shopping traffic.

The December train service runs between Page's Park and Leedon, a round trip of  2.5 miles, and not over the full length of the line.

While we make every attempt to deliver the advertised service, we reserve the right to make changes with or without notification, in the light of circumstances beyond our control.
