My youngest daughter bought surprise tickets for the Santa Special for my birthday at the end of November. We have been many times on the steam train to Groombridge but this was extra special. Lovely people pushed a trolley along the train corridor to our reserved carriage - like an Agatha Christie novel. We enjoyed very small cups of mulled wine and mince pies and biscuits made in the shape of a train. There was mist rising in the meadows on our return journey, mixed with the steam hanging in the cold air. Gorgeous.
We could have done with a bit more info before we went - but it was a lovely, quirky treat.
