Santa steams in to Toddington on the GWR

Saturday 6th December - Wednesday 24th December 2008 at Toddington Railway Station.
Santa paid an unexpected visit to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway this week to check on bookings for his “Santa Specials 2008” trains starting on Saturday 6th December. To his delight he found that some trains are already sold out and bookings are well up on previous years.

Santa at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire RailwayVisitors to the railway will be able to board the Santa Specials at Toddington to Winchcombe where Santa’s Elves and helpers are there to help with his festive workload. There will be the chance to meet Santa himself in his Christmas Grotto where young visitors receive a quality present in a festive atmosphere.

Of course Santa was very pleased to hear that he’s getting to meet lots of children this year and went on to say that he would like to see as many children as possible and encouraged everyone to book early to be sure of a place.

For 2008, there are even extra trains running later in the afternoon to see Santa amidst the coloured lights of Winchcombe Station. Everyone who goes on the Santa Specials receives a complimentary hot or cold drink and a mince pie and there is plenty of free parking at Toddington Station.

Further information and a booking form can be downloaded from or telephone bookings can be made between 10.30 and 14.30 on 01242 621405.

So why not take the advice of Santa and book a place now for a festive day to remember.
