My family went on the Santa Express at the weekend, our children are ages 2, 4 and 7 what an enjoyable day for us all. The trains run at the weekends up to Christmas and we booked in advance, tickets are reasonable and the children receive present from Santa, with hot drinks, mince pies, cold drinks and biscuits included in...

The world's oldest continuously working commercially successful railway isn't as glamorous as the Keighley And Worth Valley Railway, but it very modestly preserves a vitally important part of Britain's industrial and steam heritage - this is hardcore industrial railway history!

We got there a bit later than planned on the Saturday and missed the last Steam trip (there was another diesel to come) so went back on Sunday - we only live 10mins down the road.
