The Santa Special trains run from Barry Island Station on each of the days at 11.45, 13.30, 14.30 and 15.30 hrs. The out and back journey takes about half an hour.

Booking is advisable as the trains are already filling up fast.

Fares are £11.50 each for adults and children and £5.50 for babies under 1 year.

John Buxton, Managing Director of the railway said, “Meeting Santa on the steam train at Barry Tourist Railway is the best way to see him; there is no queuing as Santa visits every child on the train at their seat and Santa gives each one a quality present. Adults can sample the mulled wine and mince pies afterwards“.

There will Vintage and Wartime Christmas displays at Barry Island Station too and craft stalls on some of the days.
