Santa's Steam Adventures - York Railway


Last week me, him and the minis headed to York's National Railway Museum for a very special adventure.
Now i'm sure your probably aware that the man in the big red suit is due to visit soon and of course this means we best go and see him and tell him what we would like for Christmas.

York's Railway Museum's station hall has been transformed in preparation of the big day, letters and presents everywhere!


 Everything looked so magical, lights presents and cards everywhere, the kids couldn't wait to go have a a closer look.


A view of  station hall


 Alex found a friend in and among the presents.


 The Children walked further up the hall, Presents, cards and letters everywhere!


Soon we found a sleigh and a reindeer, beautifully lit up and of course this then called for a photo.

"Cheese!"

We carried on walking past more and more presents, letters and cards

We then had a very important job to do, a special kind of helping job for the big man himself.


All the letters that were laying around, we had to help to sort them, the red envelopes went in the post box to go Airmail and the white letters were loaded into a bag to take direct to Santa via the steam train ride!

We hopped aboard the steam train "Teddy" and our little journey began, snuggled in blankets singing single bells with our very own little bells to shake. 


As if by magic and the power of the steam train, Santa appeared :) 


 Valentino was the first to visit Santa and he of course told him what he would like for Christmas.


 Then Lorenzo went to have a little chat with Santa, he also put his request in and Santa jingled some bells over Lorenzo and he made a wish!


 Alex was up next and she was a little overwhelmed and didn't really know what to think, well she is only 19 months so i will let her off.... no doubt next year will be very different!


Teddy the steam train then headed back to the station where we then went back inside and headed for the dining car restaurant where we had our complementary drinks and mince pies and the kids had some juice and a biscuit.

We all had a great afternoon and the atmosphere was excellent, the staff at the museum were brilliant with the children and were really enthusiastic and definitely made the day so enjoyable.
