Santa Special steam trains return to Corris Railway

Corris Railway

Corris Railway will be running its annual weekend of Santa Special trains on December 11 and 12 this year.

Headed by steam engine number 7, the train will leave Corris Station for a short winter’s day journey along part of the beautiful Dulas Valley to Maespoeth Junction where Santa will be waiting with presents for children.

Children will also receive a soft drink and sweets whilst adults will be served mince pies and mulled juice.

The Railway’s Museum and sales area at Corris Station will be open on both days between 11am and 4pm, giving a chance to purchase railway related items including the 2022 calendar and, if needed, last minute Christmas cards.

In a change from previous years, the Santa Trains must be pre-booked online. Trains running on Sunday, December 12 are nearly full but seats remain on the Saturday services.

Passengers may also like to visit Corris Craft Centre with its café or the Slaters Arms which is a short walk from Corris station.
