The Ribble Steam Railway is running Santa Steam Specials again this year. They must have proved very popular last year because there is only limited availability on certain dates just before Christmas. This sounds like a great ideas to keep the young ones entertained in between bouts of Christmas shopping. Check out the website because advance booking is essential. Next year is the 10th anniversary of opening to the public and there is an exciting program of steam excursions and special events to watch out for.
