The Santa Train

Fed up with just walking around the nearest block of houses, we set off for the Brampton Crossing. A number of train enthusiasts have a large collection of everything train!
Today they had a couple of engines steaming up and down the lines with the Santa Special. It was a hive of activity and the car parks were full, but we were lucky with someone just pulling out as we arrived.
Having only been walking in 20 minute spurts I actually managed to walk for 35 minutes before collapsing in the car for the ride home. It is lovely to be out and about and see the children enjoying visits to Santa and trips on his train.
Lovely to see these restored trains in action

Coaches of every shape and size.
One had three little 'cat flap' size doors... wonder what that was used for?
