Santa Specials coming to end

PEOPLE are running out of time to visit Father Christmas and his helpers at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Pickering and Grosmont stations as the popular Santa Specials come to an end on Tuesday.

General manager Philip Benham said: “The North Yorkshire Moors Railway Santa Specials have been a highlight of the festive season for many years, not just for the railway but for the many hundreds of excited children and their families who have enjoyed a visit to Santa Claus and riding on a steam train.”

Santa Specials depart from December 17-20.

Christopher Vine, who writes books for children who love trains, will be outside Pickering Station shop signing copies.
