    Chinnor & Princes Risborough are running Santa Trains 19-23rd Dec, plus previous weekends if restrictions allow.
    https://www.chinnorrailway.co.uk/product.php?xProd=312

    Unlike their previous post-lockdown trains, these are board/alight at Princes Risborough only, with Santa's Grotto at Chinnor.

    So who’s still standing after today’s announcements?

    Noticed NYMR / KWVR / SVR / Kirklees / Swanage have said they will be operating as planned.

    GCR / RHDR cancelling first few dates but looking to still run others.

    A view of the 2MT at Oxenhope on the final day of Mince Pie Specials on the KWVR. The last services until at least half term, so I do hope they and all the other preserved lines who could run their Christmas servicesare keeping solvent
