The experience, based on the hit 2004 animated film, sees passengers travel from Dereham to the ‘North Pole’, with a cast of live actors on board, and once guests arrive they will be greeted by Father Christmas.

The railway will be using their newly-acquired Mark 3 coaches, which they are refurbishing to replace the airline-style seats with tables of four to make them family-friendly.

Charlie Robinson, the chairman of the MNR Trust, said: “This is an important day for the railway, as the revenue we receive from our Polar Express experience forms a vital part of the railway’s income.”
