…until Santa arrives at Apedale. We’ve had a word, and he’s jollier and happier than ever before. So, if you’re after a truly ludicrous present – say an Aston Martin DB5, or a Furby – then perhaps this could be your lucky year. Santa trains are running and 15,16, 22 & 23 December, using the Kerr Stuart Joffre for traction. The Grotto is finished. The train has so many fairy lights that it’s now visible from orbit, all we need now are the fare-paying hoardes. Many of the hoardes seem to have already booked – so please check out here, as seats are selling out quickly on some trains. Some snow would be nice, too.
