The North Norfolk Railway has invested in special measures to ensure the highly popular Santa Specials and the Norfolk Lights Express trains can continue to operate this Christmas.

The Santa Specials will operate from every weekend from November 28 until December 18, then daily up to and including Christmas Eve.

There are four trains planned each day the first departing Sheringham at 10am. Each family booking will reserve an individual compartment, currently for up to a maximum of six people, to comply with the current COVID-19 government measures.

Trains will continue to be treated with a special spray to tackle the virus, which the Railway has been using since it restarted operations in July.

In addition, all compartments will be cleaned after each trip all to provide a safe environment for passengers. 

The Santa grotto will also provide a safe walk through of festive scenes including 100 Christmas trees and light displays. Santa will be there to ensure something of normality during these times.

The Norfolk Lights Express will start operations from the November 16, operating with the same safety measures as the Santa trains. Both events must be pre-booked.
