    By far the best Santa experience we’ve had. They’ve gone properly balls out on the gifts - our wee man’s ticket was £8, and going by the looks of it he’s got about a tenner’s worth of present. Which we weren’t expecting. And Santa went out of his way to demonstrate all the features on his new swimming whale.

    It feels lovelily done. So to speak.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    Are you attempting to become real northerns or something? First Booths, now this :confused:

    I had a nice ex-Longmoor Military Railway saddle tank throwing out clouds of steam on the santa special we went on, although I was probably more excited by the gronk that took us back into Norchard Low Level at the end of the run.

    We did it again.

    He’s still sort of too young. But also still free. So, you know.

    And this time we DID have a dog, so at least we made best use of the dog ticket.

    This time, we wanted to see the action and so sat in the very front carriage.

    Only to discover that they were running the service with two locos - one diesel, one steam - and so, we were sat right behind the diesel. #winningwithdiesel

    You’re very lucky to get steam haulage, a lot of the major heritage lines are diesel only at the moment due to fire risk from the dry weather. Vintage diesel fans are loving this!
