It’s all hands on deck as North Yorkshire Moor Railway is set to host lots of festive fun as Santa and his team of elves return for a magical journey aboard the famous Santa Express.
The special services will be running from the weekends of 25, and 26 November and 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23 & 24 December and to celebrate the countdown to the highly anticipated event, the NYMR has local sculptors, Sand In Your Eye, to create a striking sand sculpture of Santa alongside a steam train at Whitby beach.

Those going onboard from either Pickering or Grosmont Station can enjoy an enchanting Christmas experience to see Santa Claus and his jolly helpers as they pass through the carriages. Visitors can also expect to meet Santa with a special gift for all the children onboard – provided they’ve managed to stay on the nice list this year. Santa’s Helpers will also be on the hour-long return journey for all the festive fun and games.
Chris Price, General Manager at NYMR, said, “We’re once again thrilled to be holding the Santa Specials for another year of festive fun. This is always an extremely popular service and the lead up to Christmas is always such an exciting time. We love that families and groups from all over come to Yorkshire to experience this dazzling event.”
