The Leighton Buzzard Railway is delighted to announce that tickets for its 2023 Christmas season are now on general sale.
Santa’s Steam Specials will begin on Saturday 2 December and trains will operate over a total of 14 days, finishing on Christmas Eve. In addition, the popular Mince Pie Specials will run from Wednesday 27 to Friday 29. Once again, the timetable offers a twilight experience between Saturday 16 to Saturday 23, with a ‘post sunset’ 5.30pm departure.
Due to a high level of demand and to thank them for subscribing, priority was given to the railway’s newsletter subscribers for the first week.
The experience includes a 25-minute return trip 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.
Full details of all the railway’s remaining operating days in 2023, including the Santa Specials and Mince Pie Specials, as well as an Autumn Gala and Halloween event can be found at www.buzzrail.uk.
