The Welshpool & Llanfair Railway Line have added an extra day to their traditional Santa Service this Christmas.

The highly popular Specials are being held over the weekends of December 10/11 and 17/18, plus this year for the first time on Monday, December 19.

Children travel on the special trains to meet Santa and his helpers, who join the train en-route and then stroll the steam-heated carriages distributing presents to each child.

All trains run from Llanfair Caereinion, the journey taking around 45 minutes and on their return to Llanfair adults will be offered a complimentary glass of warming mulled wine and every child a fruit drink, with a complimentary mince pie too.

The tearoom will be open for hot drinks and light refreshments and the railway shop open for snapping up last-minute Christmas presents.

This year the trains leave Llanfair Station each day at 10.45am, 12noon, 1.15pm and 2.30pm, while on Sunday, 18th, only there will be an extra train, departing at 3.45pm.

Tickets cost £12 on the day per person travelling (babies under 12 months old travel free). Advance booking is strongly advised to both save money and guarantee a seat. Advance tickets cost £10 online through or by calling 01938 810441.
