    There's no doubt about it we have some fine photographs and videos here from all those who get out there in whatever the weather. Today, with the dusting of snow, made the scene perfect for a Santa train. thumbsup.gif

    Thanks to all for the superb images of today's run! I was on board with my son/daughter-in-law and grandaughter and we had an amazing time :) WCRC looked after everyone superbly from the minute they stepped on board! They have the main-line Santa train theme down to a fine art, offering great family entertainment at a very modest price. The little one (aged only two) was fully engaged throughout and walked away with a bag full of goodies :) An added bonus was the one hour pause at Hellifield where all the kids enjoyed some playful snowballing. I don't know how WCRC do it for the price.

    Fantastic show from West Coast again with four different runs with various motive power but the main thing being that it was all about the Kiddies enjoining themselves which obviously happened.

    Well you could be forgiven for thinking its midnight at Carnforth with the clock stopped at twelve o'clock, it looks so bright I have never seen it so bright there, amazing what a camera can do these days, very nice.

    here is my last minute video from about 15/20 mins before this photo from lineside almost dark with whistle to boot. :-



    looked good to me.

    Footage from the second Santa Special hauled by 35018 on that special frosty day:



    I should add that the thumbnail is taken from a shot filmed by my father, Peter Ainsworth.
