To everyone booked on the Santa Specials.

We look forward to welcoming you to our very festive railway.

All services will depart from and return to our Furnace Sidings Station (Postcode NP4 9AX) where free car parking is available.

Please ensure you arrive plenty of time before your scheduled departure.
Unfortunately on this event we will not be able to accommodate passengers who missed their train on later services.

The Fireman's Shovel Tearoom at Furnace Sidings will be open for the duration of the event. You are more than welcome to visit even if you missed out on tickets for the train. Don’t miss their festive treats!
Eric's Emporium will also be open for gifts, toys, books and souvenirs, ideal for shopping for Christmas presents.

No tickets for the train will be available on the day - totally sold out.
Our 2024 timetable and events programme will be published on this website in February/March
when you will also be able to book your tickets in advance.

WARNING: We must advise customers that scammers are actively trying to sell tickets for the Santa Specials.

We only sell tickets via Ticketsource via our official links on this website.
Do not purchase tickets from any other website or individuals, they are most likely scammers
who will  gather your personal details which will compromise your card/bank security.
We cannot be held responsible if you ignore this advice.
You should contact your bank/card provider if you have purchased tickets from any third party or individual.
Tickets are non transferable and our system will check your details and recognise any tickets that are not valid when presented at the event. Once purchased tickets are non-refundable, we advise you to take out cancellation cover with Ticketsource. Standard Terms and Conditions apply.

We would like to thank all our visitors for a fantastic season in 2023 and look forward to seeing you in 2024.
