Santa’s special visit to Elsecar Railway
Santa’s special visit to Elsecar Railway

After welcoming Santa with a warm Yorkshire welcome it’s been a busy winter with our annual Santa Special.

Santa has gone back to put his feet up and enjoy a well deserved break, all in time for next year. Thankfully he’s also taken back his naughty elf’s but they did like a good old Christmas sing-song.

We at the Railway thank you for booking and thank you for all your feedback so far.
We have made a few tweaks to our service experience this year as you will of seen.

Comments are always welcome, and all comments help the Santa team understand & improve. Any feedback will be noted at our ‘Santa de-brief’ meeting held next month.

Remember our railway is run completely by volunteers if you like to help out or be part of the next Santa Special please get in touch.

We had our first ride on the Santa Special yesterday with our just turned 2 year old. It was magical from start to finish and we had the best time! Thank you so much, the station, your staff and volunteers are amazing. We will definitely be making this one of our Christmas traditions for years to come!
