Santa has agreed to return for 2023, so it's all aboard for Santa's special train this Christmas!

"This was by far the best Santa experience on a railway I've been on over the years"

Take a return journey on Santa's Fantastically Festive Special Train from North Weald to meet Santa and his friends during this unique experience, with the added bonus that all children receive a present from Santa!

The experience starts as you join our vintage London bus service at either Epping Underground station or in Ongar. We'll also have a live brass band!
