Iconic Santa Special steam train rides open for booking at Lincolnshire Wolds Railway

A Lincolnshire attraction is promising children a magical Christmas treat like no other as it gears up to launch its much-loved Santa Special steam trains.

Based in Ludborough, Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is renowned for its iconic Christmas Santa Special, which sees children taking a special one-hour train journey, where they will be joined by Santa Claus himself and his merry band of Elves.

After the train journey, children will have the chance to visit Santa in his grotto to share their Christmas wishes, receive a special gift and have their picture taken.


To cater to the demand, there will be four trains running on the following dates: Saturday, December 9, Sunday, December 10, Saturday, December 16, Sunday, December 17 and Monday, December 18.

Pauline Neal, of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, said: “This year there will be four trains each day to cope with the demand. Our Santa Specials are extremely popular and fill up very quickly, so we advise customers to book early via our website to be sure of getting the time and day of their choice.”
