The Leighton Buzzard Railway Santa’s Steam Specials will begin on Saturday 3rd December and trains will operate over a total of 13 days, finishing on Christmas Eve. In addition, the popular Mince Pie Specials will run from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th. Once again, the timetable offers a twilight experience between Saturday 17th to Friday 23rd, with an ‘post sunset’ departure.
The experience includes a 25-minute return tip from Page’s Park to Leedon Loop through suburban scenery. Mince pies and punch will be served on the train prior to departure, and after the journey, customers are invited to visit Santa in his grotto, with all children aged 12 and under receiving a present.
The Leighton Buzzard Railway is an accredited museum with a history linked with the sand quarrying industry around the town. In addition to equipment from that era, the railway has built up a significant collection of Great War vintage narrow gauge equipment. The railway is based at Page’s Park, Leighton Buzzard, and the line runs to Stonehenge Works adjacent to the sand quarries which the original industrial railway was built to serve.
