The 2019 Santa Trains took place over 4 days in the run up to the big day,… and it was fantastic to see so many families visit the railway, see Santa and have such festive fun and refreshments and hopefully taking away some wonderful memories.
It was the first Christmas where Brown Bear was in service alongside Sea Lion… recreating the original Groudle Railway view of these two locomotives operating side by side… and also Otter had a trip out on Saturday 21st December aswell.
It was also the first year we trialled free shuttle bus services with our friends at Bus Vannin and Minibuses Isle of Man…. a huge thank you to both of them as it seemed to be a very welcome addition to the event and popular with guests in alleviating some of the traffic and parking issues, it is something we are keen to repeat in the future.
If you visited we hope you had a wonderful time at the railway… and our next Services are the Boxing Day Mince Pie Trains from 11am to 3pm… with inclusive tickets available online from only £5 for Adults and £4 for children.
On behalf of all the volunteers at Groudle Glen Railway… we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.
