Santa Specials 2019!

Come and visit Santa at the Heatherslaw Light Railway!

Passengers are invited to travel from Heatherslaw to Etal Station and back on our Christmas decorated train! The train will be hauled by one of our steam locomotives, “Bunty” or “Lady Augusta”. On returning to Heatherslaw Station, passengers will be shown up to the model railway room where they can enjoy refreshments. The model railway will be running to entertain the children while they are waiting to visit Santa. Families will be invited into the decorated grotto to see Santa who will provide each child with a quality Christmas gift. The Ticket Office gift shop will also be open for any last minute Christmas shopping!

Passengers have the choice of travelling on the 11am, 12:30 or 2pm train. Tickets must be pre-booked and paid for on the day of travel at the Ticket Office; we accept payment in cash, debit or credit cards. The train ride, refreshments and gift from Santa are all included in the price of £12 per person.
