Over the last 48 hours, we have been communicating with both the Welsh Government and Torfaen Council about the running of this weekend’s (19th + 20th December 2020) Steam Santa Specials services. Together, we have come to the collective decision to cancel our planned trains on this coming Saturday and Sunday.
Whilst this will be very disappointing news to many, all three bodies agree that is the correct action to ensure the safety of our customers, volunteers and the wider community. We will be contacting our ticketing provider shortly to arrange refunds for those who have booked to travel with us on the affected days.
Our volunteers thank you for your continued understanding and support. We look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
