Father Christmas will be personally delivering presents to children while they enjoy a magical train ride on an old steam engine at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre.

The Quainton attraction is offering a series of Santa’s Magical Adventures on November 30 and December 6-7, 13-14, and 20-22.

And for the first three dates, Santa’s Train will be hauled by Thomas the Tank Engine.

Bookings are now open and parents are strongly advised to reserve places now as tickets, which cost £14, sell out fast.

The special treats see Father Christmas bring a gift (age and gender suitable) for every child during their steam train ride.

There will then becomplimentary seasonal refreshments for adults, with a juice drink and chocolate biscuit for children.

Then, great free face painting, followed by entertainment at the 20 minute live balloon show.

Trains run regularly throughout the day from 10.25 am until 3.20 pm.

The Railway Centre’s Sheila Lobley said: “We offer a very good value for money day out.

“They get a steam train ride and everybody loves Thomas the Tank Engine in particular.

“All the presents are gender specific are gender and age specific which is why we want people to pre-book.

“They’re all really nice presents and nicely wrapped.

“ The whole visitor centre is beautifully decorated as well.”
