by Amanda Kilburn
  • All aboard the Santa Express from Bo'ness

 

Thousands of young visitors and their families will be heading to the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway this Christmas season (Saturdays and Sundays, from 27 November to 19 December) for some festive fun on the train. So popular are these trains that all except the November trains are now fully booked!

Decorated carriages and seasonal songs create a festive atmosphere for a visit from Santa, who will present a gift to each child aboard. Not to leave them out, complimentary refreshments for adults are available at Bo'ness Station.

Visitors pay special fares for this event which is £9 for all. (Infants 17 months and under on the date of travel are free). This includes a return train journey, visit from Santa with gift for each child, complimentary refreshments for adults, free parking and access to coffee shop and gift shop.  

 Pre-booking for these last few seats is essential by phoning the Santa Line on 01506 824356 or visiting http://www.srps.org.uk/railway/santa.htm .  Trains will be running from Bo’ness at 10.30, 12.00, 13.30 and 15.00.  Why not start Christmas festivities early and treat the family to a wonderful visit to see Santa Claus aboard a steam train on the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway?

The Scottish Railway Preservation Society, who are the operators of this annual event are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the site over the festive period.

Amanda Kilburn, Business Development Director at the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway said:

“Our Santa Steam trains are as popular as ever and we have been taking bookings for them for a good few months. These trains are a lovely way to combine the nostalgia of steam with a treat for the children to make a really great day out. Our volunteers look forward to this exciting event, it is such a great atmosphere.”
