Santa Special

EAST LANCS RAILWAY IS THE HOME OF CHRISTMAS - AND SANTA'S ON BOARD!

It's been a strange sort of year, and like most of you we are desperate to return to some kind of normality. That's why we're thrilled to announce that, as it has for over 30 years, the East Lancashire Railway is once again becoming the home of Christmas magic with the return of our legendary Santa Specials!

While it may not be exactly the same as you remember it, our elves have been working their little pointed socks off to ensure that the atmosphere that has enchanted families year in and year out for three decades has remained intact.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Upon arrival, admire the beautifully dressed Bury Bolton Street Station with its many Christmas trees and decorations. Take a steam train ride to Rawtenstall and back through the Irwell Valley - journey time approximately 80 minutes Immerse yourself in the festive atmosphere with a beautifully decorated train interior Meet Santa and his elves as they provide a gift to every child Receive an activity pack for children and a mince pie and festive tipple for grown ups NEW FOR 2020: Journey in style with a private compartment coach, limited space available so don't miss out
