Santa was very much the name of the game today with very little else going on around the railway. We entertained many happy families on the railway today. My thanks go to all those involved in this significant operation from those serving in the marquee, the train management, the entertainment, the train crew, platform staff, Booking Office's, catering etc. Not to mention the man himself and his grotto helper. There seems to be a bout of winter virus going round so thank you to those who stepped in at late notice to keep the show on the road (well rails).
