The Nene Valley Railway is once again putting on its Santa Special journeys this festive season.

From November 30 to Christmas Eve, the locomotive will travel nearly 700 miles making trips from Wansford to Peterborough and back, consuming more than 100 tons of coal and 30,000 gallons of water.

Guests will get through 2,000 little bottles of Baileys, a similar quantity of Whisky and Brandy miniatures, and 12,000 mince pies.
