Stainmore Railway Company at Kirkby Stephen East

Stainmore Railway Company runs an Annual Santa Event.

We will be running our annual Santa Event on the 2nd Saturday of December Saturday  for one day 10am  until 4pm.
We aim to run steam hauled service but as we are 1000 feet above sea level we suggest visitors wrap up warm for the event,
Our buffet car will open for refreshments - tea, coffee and cold drinks and bacon/ sausage rolls  or toasties.
Stalls on the station
Cost £8-50 per child with one accompanying adult free includes train travel, meeting Santa on the train and a gift. Additional accompanying adults £4-00. No pre-booking required.  

Miniature traction engines were available for free rides in 2014

The station always looks very festive

Our station cats always look forward to welcoming visitors

This is a one day event with free parking available at Kirkby Stephen East Station, South Road, Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria CA17 4LA. We are located opposite the Platform3 Playbarn so why not visit both attractions in the same day.
