Santa Specials

Steam into Christmas on the East Lancashire Railway's famously festive Santa Specials. Your family will make enchanted memories to share as they take a trip through the magical Irwell Valley alongside colourful characters and surprises.

And what Christmas treat would be complete without a visit from a host of happy elves and Santa Claus himself.

Begin the adventure at Bury Bolton Street Station where you will journey through a gorgeously decorated winter wonderland. Say hello to Mrs Claus and the talking Christmas Tree, and maybe even stop for a quick singalong with our carol singing choir of polar bears, before boarding your train.

Once you're settled into your seat, a steam train will haul you to Rawtenstall and back on an approximately 80 minute round trip. Along the way the festive fun continues as you meet your favourite Christmas characters and get the chance to belt out some classics with the brass band. Whilst travelling, Santa himself will visit your carriage with a gift for every little one, and there will be time for a chat and a selfie or two.
