Santa Specials 2022.

Come and see Santa at the Heatherslaw Light Railway!

£15.00 Per Person

We are delighted to announce that our Santa Specials are running again this December! Passengers are invited to travel from Heatherslaw to Etal Station (The North Pole!) and back on our Christmas decorated train! The trains will be hauled by steam locomotive “Bunty”, or our diesel engine "Binky".


To ensure our passengers and staff are safe whilst the pandemic is still lingering, we have decided to adapt our traditional format. Santa will now greet families at Etal Station and present each child with a quality gift. Refreshments will be available and distributed prior to your departure to enjoy on your journey!
