Santa Specials

There’s a nip in the air and we can hear the distant ringing of sleigh bells, that can only mean one thing! No we haven’t come down with a case of wintertime tinnitus, it’s Christmas here at the East Lancashire Railway.

We’re kicking things off in style this weekend with the first of our popular Santa Specials. Board a beautifully decorated carriage for a steam train trip through a winter wonderland and meet jolly old St Nick himself as he and his helpers travel through the train. Children will receive a present from Santa while adults will get a festive tipple and a mince pie.

Tickets are selling out fast so make sure you book today.
