Great trip on Christmas Special from Oxenhope to Keighley and back. Very friendly staff and authentic features on stations (eg coal fires in booking halls) and trains (eg buffet cars). Complimentary mince pies well received.

Went on the Santa Special for the second year now with familly of 4 adults (Mum, Dad, Grandad and Nanna) and 2 grandsons aged 2 and 5. What can I say, it was magical, From getting on the train at Oxenhope we were made to feel special, Santa's helpers are coming through the train throughout the journey first with mince pies and sherry followed by Scrooged( boo) and his sidekick then behind them followed by his elfs is Santa who stops and chats to every boy and girl along the way giving them a present that is very good (not rubbish) It cost us £90 for us all and was well worth it.

The trip was geared towards the kids and we were an all adult party, still the mince pie and glass of sherry made up for it. Well run and friendly volunteers. Looked like they were really making an effort to please all the children on board. Interesting Steam Loco, 92 years old and still going strong. Would have liked to visit the engine shed at Haworth but they were too busy with stacks of presents for the Santa Special.
Oxenhope to Keighley and back, well worth the trip.
