The Swanage Railway has announced that it has added additional dates for their Steam and Lights event in December.
The new service will replace the Swanage Railway’s Santa Specials, which cannot operate due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Instead of Father Christmas handing out presents to children, the new service will see trains covered in coloured lights as they steam through the Isle of Purbeck in the dark.
The two additional dates are as follows:
- Thursday, 10th December 2020
- Thursday, 17th December 2020
Bookings will be available online on the Swanage Railway website at 10 am today (22nd October 2020). You can find out more by clicking here to visit their website.
The Swanage Railway volunteer Commercial Director Steve Williams said: “This new ‘Steam and Lights’ train service in the run-up to Christmas is a festive first for the Swanage Railway and we are very excited because it will be very special and out of this world – colourful, evocative and dramatic. We are looking forward to it tremendously.”
