Keeping the age of steam alive!

Santa Special Information


Have you booked for our Santa Special?? 
We have a new ticket system this year so therefore you will not receive any tickets, when you arrive at the station on your booked time and date, you will be welcomed , checked off on the list and shown to your seats.
Please feel free to bring along any screenshots of your booking for peace of mind, however providing you have noted your booked date & time, you will be on our visitors guest list on the day.
Seats are allocated automatically and you will be required to take these seats on the day so to help Santa and his Elves not to get mixed up with the children attending.
Santa will visit you during your journey.
The total trip is around 45 mins.
Don’t forget to visit Santa’s Grotto after your journey to take your own photos.
Why not get in the festive spirit singing to your favourite tunes as you travel along !!
We would love to see everyone wearing your best Christmas costumes / jumpers or something Christmassy – one elf in particular will be checking & telling Santa if you’ve co-operated haha  
We look forward to welcoming you onboard !!  Signed, Elf Marc
Not Booked??
We still have some dates available….
Enjoy a festive ride onboard our steam train here at the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway. 
Enjoy a round trip of roughly 45 minutes, Santa will visit you at your seats & then visit him afterwards in his grotto, to take your own photos. 
Be quick as our festive trains are very popular and seats do sell out quickly…some dates are still available !!
