Tickets available in the shop and online!

Joyce, the little engine on the Somerset and Dorset Railway at Midsomer Norton, is thrilled that she is taking Santa to the station on three Sundays in December.

Children who bring their families to see Santa will get a ride behind Joyce, a snack in the buffet car and of course a present. Santa will hopefully leave some mince pies and Christmas Punch for Mum and Dad after he has had a snack. Volunteers at Midsomer Norton Station will be doing all sorts of things to make it a jolly outing for everybody. 

Drivers and Guards will be working the trains, along with ticket inspectors and platform staff. Children will see Santa in his grotto specially decorated by the elves.He is hoping that all the children will be able to tell him how good they have been so that he can call on Christmas Eve.

Santa Specials will be on December 3rd, 10th and 17th from 10am until 4pm

Tickets must be booked either on a Sunday or a Monday at the station, telephone 01761 411221, or online below
