Santa Steamer Set To Raise Festive Spirits

The North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) is gearing up for a fun-filled winter season this December with Santa Specials - festive fayre served aboard a Pullman service, and the launch of its online Christmas shop; all great reasons to be merry…..even if you are in lockdown right now!

Families looking to create some Christmas magic for their little ones can hop aboard a heritage steam engine on a 60-minute journey to help Santa and his elves save Christmas.

It will operate on weekends in December, as well as 21st - 24th*, departing from Pickering Station, where visitors will catch a glimpse of Santa and enjoy festive entertainment with his helpers, before steaming along to Levisham Station as they help make toys for good girls and boys.

NYMR has also just released details of its Christmas Pullman dining experience and festive fayre menu.

Guests can choose from smoked salmon parcels, chicken liver pate, festive turkey, roast topside of beef, not forgetting Christmas pud with hot rum sauce, amongst many other delectable dishes.

The Christmas Moorlander service departs from Grosmont station at 12.30pm on a variety of dates in December and January, with prices starting from £145 for a table of two. Further details can be found here nymr.co.uk/christmas-moorlander .

Due to Covid-19 control measures and to help the railway maintain capacity, pre-booking is essential, so book now by visiting nymr.co.uk/santa-reimagined - Yule be glad you did!

*Trains will depart from Pickering at 09:15, 11:15, 13.15 and 15:15 on December 5 and 6, 12 and 13, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 and 24th.
