There will be six days of Santa Specials running this year – 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th, 18th & 19th December.
For a magical Christmas treat for children up to 10 years old, a trip on a Mid Suffolk Light Railway Santa Special is not to be missed.
Steam trains run from Brockford Station to ‘North Pole Halt’, for an individual visit to Santa in his Christmas Guards Van and each child receives a present. The Stations, Brockford and ‘North Pole Halt’ will all be decorated in full ‘Christmasy’ style. Plus on the return from their Santa visit passengers can follow the signs for the Christmas Market where Christmas crafts, hot drinks , waffles and even festive mulled wine will be available to buy.
There will also be two traction engines in steam and a Dutch Street organ on site to give an added festive feel and, for children (of all ages), there will be model railway layouts including a live steam model engine.
Visitors, especially children, can enjoy the unique atmosphere created at Suffolk’s only standard gauge award winning railway museum. The Santa Special’s genuine Great Eastern Railway Victorian four-wheeler coaches are a historical experience for any passengers.
Unfortunately all trains are now fully booked.
