THE Lincolnshire Wolds Railway at Ludborough will be running extra Santa Special trains in the run-up to Christmas this year to meet demand.

The Santa trains proved so popular last Christmas they have decided to run on an extra day this year.

The steam-hauled Santa Specials will run on Sunday December 11, Saturday December 17 and Sunday December 18.

There will be four trains on each of those days at 11am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3.30pm.

LWR spokesman Gordon Newton said: “Seats are already filling up fast so I advise people to book as early as possible to ensure they get the time of their choice.

“The easy way to reserve your places is by going to the railway website at and download a booking form.

“You will then be sent your tickets by return post”.

Children can also come and tell Santa what they want for Christmas when he visits Ludborough station on Sunday November 20.
