Santa Train at the Tulip Viaduct...

We went to the Tulip Trestle to watch the Santa Train cross the train bridge on Saturday, 2nd December. A special Christmas community event was organised, with presents for children, lots of yummy food, as well as Christmas decorations and festive music being played. The central moment was, of course, the Santa Train crossing the bridge. Santa (or Father Christmas) was in one of the carriages and the train stopped in each town along its route, allowing children to board and meet Santa. It was a great morning!
