The stations are transported back to the 1940s - yet the lovely decorations are still up, so best of both worlds! Re-enactors make this a memorable day out, with plenty of photo' opportunities - although less than the summer event. It makes a nice day out after Christmas, unlimited travel up and down the line at leisure.
Sadly, the buffet at Alresford (our start point and only period eating place) is only reliable for tea, coffee and bacon rolls - unlike other railways who run a war-time themed menu and the staff dress up, this one does not appear to join in the event and while my soup was ok, my partner's meatball stew was inedible! Not what you want on a cold day - best to walk into town for food.
Otherwise a great day out.
