It's full steam ahead for Santa's return to Avon Valley Railway next month, when families can enjoy festive fun and meet the man himself.
Santa Steam Specials will be running from Bitton every weekend in December, plus Sunday, November 24, Saturday, November 30, Monday, December 23, and Christmas Eve.
Accompanied by his helpers, Santa will make his way along the train, stopping to talk to the children and, after checking they have been good, give them each a present. Parents are not left out as everyone will receive a delicious Anstees' mince pie or festive biscuit.
The Santa Special experience takes approximately one hour, during which time all the family can take in the views of the Avon Valley on a six-mile round trip from the old-fashioned carriages and enjoy the unique sights, sounds and smells of a bygone age when steam was king.
Train times range from 10.30am to 4.45pm, depending on the day, with prices ranging from £9 to £12. Children under one year travel for £5.
The heart of Avon Valley Railway is Bitton Station an original Midland Railway station, which, like the locomotives, carriages and track, has been restored by a team of dedicated volunteers for the delight of current and future generations.
