It's all-aboard for Santa's Special train!
Santa has agreed to return for our 2015 season, and we will be running our popular Santa Specials on the 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 22, 23 and 24 December.
Departures from North Weald are at 09:45*, 11:25, 13:05, 14:45** & 16:25** (*excluding 5 & 6 December, **excluding 24 December). Buses will depart from Epping Underground and locations in Ongar approximately 50 minutes earlier, so as to conveniently connect with these trains.
Our vintage buses will collect you from Epping or Ongar (if requested when booking) and will transport you to North Weald station*, where our Santa Special trains will start. Here, adults will receive a complimentary mince pie and a glass of mulled wine, whilst children receive a juice drink and chocolate bar.
Once aboard the train, let the steam engine take the pressure; Santa will make his way through the carraiges, accompanied by his elves, and hand out a gift to all the good boys and girls.
There will be live music to add to the atmosphere, and a magician to entertain the children whilst they await their journey. Maybe there will even be time for a photograph with Santa at one of the stations...
Tickets are now on sale; standard prices for adults & children have been frozen at £16 & £13 respectivley, but we have a slight increase in price on our busier days for adults.

Limited compartments sizes are available for 6 or 8 people, and are priced at £130 & £150 respectively.
