Santa Specials booking update

Here’s the latest update for Santa Specials. Don’t forget to book by Friday if you’d like to travel this weekend.

The last train of the day is the least popular for bookings but it is your only chance, other than the late trains during Steam & Beer, to travel on the trains in the dark – this gives you a completely different outlook on the Railway.

You can book your Santa Special trips now, availability is shown below (green = good availability, orange = train filling up and red = train full):

Saturday 16th – 11am, 12pm, 2pm & 3pm
Sunday 17th – 11am, 12pm, 2pm & 3pm
Saturday 23rd – 11am, 12pm, 2pm & 3pm

(Updated 12th December, 1pm)

Call 01795 428269 or download the booking form – fares are £13 for over 3s and £10 for under 3s. Children receive a present from Santa (there will be a selection to choose from), everyone else gets seasonal refreshments. This year, steam locomotive Leader will be operating the Santa’s Special trains (subject to availability). A round trip takes approximately two hours.

Please note that we will not be able to process bookings after the Friday of the weekend you are booking, i.e. you won’t be able to book this Sunday’s trains after Friday.

Please arrive at Sittingbourne Viaduct station around 15 minutes before departure as it may be necessary to issue tickets and vouchers before departure.
