It is set to be a magical Christmas on the North Norfolk Railway as the Norfolk Lights Express and Santa Special train rides make their return.

The Norfolk Lights Express was launched in 2019 and will return between November 10 and January 1.

It sees a restored steam train covered in thousands of colour-changing lights.

The Old Luggage buffet will be open for those aboard to buy refreshments including hot soup, homemade cakes and hot and soft drinks.

Passengers can also visit an on-board licensed bar before departure and during the intermission.

On weekends from November 25 to December 17 and daily from December 19 to December 23, a Santa Special event will also take place.

The Santa Special runs from Sheringham to Holt with elves on board to keep guests entertained.

The passengers will then travel to Weybourne to meet Santa who will be prepared with gifts for children. 

The Norfolk Lights Express and the railway's Santa Special are separate events and both must be booked in advance.

Tickets to The Norfolk Lights Express cost £24 while tickets to the Santa Special range from £7.50 to £29.50.
