Stainmore Railway Company at Kirkby Stephen East

Stainmore Railway Company runs an Annual Santa Event.

Last updated November 2016
We charge admission to children (£7-50) and accompanying adults are free. 
Children get to meet Santa in his grotto on the train and receive an age appropriate gift. We have miniature traction engines on the platform offering free rides to visitors and our buffet car is open for a Christmas menu. 
No advanced booking is required for this event.
Our 2015 was hit by Storm Desmond but below are photographs from previous events.
Please note: Due to our steam locomotive being under its five yearly overhaul this will be a diesel operated service. KSE is a very cold place so please wrap up warm.

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.
