The Aln Valley Railway staged the first of its planned Santa Specials last weekend and a large number of children, and their parents and grandparents, were able to enjoy the event.

Trains took the visitors on a short journey to Santa’s grotto which had been constructed in the luggage compartment of one of the carriages and the children met Father Christmas and received their presents and goody bags.

The next Santa Specials take place this weekend, but all of the places are fully booked.
