Next stop on the Boxing Day schedule is this charming tribute to Britain’s rail network, and the trains and engineers that make it so special. 

Join the teams protecting the tracks and the volunteers preserving our steam heritage as they celebrate Christmas. As the festive season approaches, we enjoy the sparkling illuminations of Steam in Lights at the Severn Valley Railway. 

We ride with Santa on a steam train through the Yorkshire Moors, we take a stunning helicopter flight checking for snowdrifts in the wild Scottish Highlands and we join the Cairngorms reindeer herd on a day trip to the Strathspey steam railway.
