Brilliant. Such a friendly little railway
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.

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

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!
Yes, noticed that...great central is now mostly diesel.
