Christmas at the Severn Valley Railway got off to a cracking start over the weekend as over 4000 people travelled to see Santa by steam train.
The first Santa Steam Specials departed from Kidderminster station on Sunday (1st December), carrying passengers along the scenic Severn Valley to visit Father Christmas in his grotto at Arley station.
The Santa Steam Specials run every weekend in the run-up to Christmas on 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd December. There are still some tickets left so to book, visit svr.co.uk or call 01299 403816.
