What’s onboard…

Your compartment will be embellished with all things ‘Christmassy’ and filled with seasonal tunes, it’s the perfect environment to soak up the festive atmosphere.

Whilst onboard our Porter will serve Adults with a seasonal drink and snack, while the Children receive a personally labelled, age specific present, handpicked by Father Christmas and his Railway Elves.

After meeting the colourful Christmas Characters the main man, Father Christmas, comes to visit your families compartment. From your doorway he will give out presents to all the good children onboard. The perfect opportunity to capture a photo of the big man himself as he meets your family.
