The station is decorated, as are the carriages. The Christmas tree is erected and coal fires will be lit at the station. The refreshment rooms will be bulging with mince pies and other seasonal fare — which all means that everything is ready for Santa's arrival on the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Railway.
A spokesperson said: "Santa’s helpers have packed large quantities of gifts in preparation for Santa’s arrival on Sunday 25 November. The trains are being prepared in an atmosphere of steadily building excitement."
The railway team at the visitor attraction near Skipton says it is expecting a big turn out and is recommending early booking.
