Swanage Railway bring back their popular Steam and Lights Christmas Train for 2021
Make wonderful and magical memories in the run-up to Christmas thanks to our festive, evocative, dramatic and colourful Steam and Lights train journey through the Isle of Purbeck countryside.
The new not to be missed pre-booked steam train experience, the steam locomotive and carriages will be covered with brightly coloured lights while the cosy steam-heated carriage interiors will be festively decorated for the one-hour evening round trip passing the historic ruins of Corfe Castle.
A memorable experience suitable for all ages. Stations and key points along the line will be specially lit as the Steam and Lights train passes through in the dark.
On board the train, there will be festive music synchronised to the lighting displays passing the carriage windows, as well as an informative on-train commentary.
Before passengers board the Steam and Lights train at Swanage station, there will be a dramatic switch-on of the train lights at the platform.
Steam and Lights trains must be booked in advance and can only be joined at Swanage station, where the brightly lit festive trains start and end their journeys. Departing from Swanage station at 17.15 and 19.15, the return trip will last approximately one hour.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO SANTA ON ‘STEAM AND LIGHTS’.
CAUTION: This event includes some flashing lights, so may be unsuitable for people suffering from epilepsy.
