Blaenavon's Heritage Railway
Saturday 9th (10:30) - Sunday 10th December 2017 (15:30)
Tel: 01495 792263 or Email:

You can now enjoy a longer train ride to Blaenavon High Level, where, next to a roaring fire you will meet the big man himself in the station grotto!

The train will return to Furnace Sidings following a non-stop run (through Furnace Sidings) to Whistle Inn (please call 01495 790403 to check opening times of the Whistle Inn Pub if you are planning to visit, as this is not part of the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway)

Our buffet carriage will be transformed into a festive waiting room along the platform, so you can stay warm while waiting for the steam train to return, (the children can even open their presents).

As well as the opportunity to meet with Santa, each child will receive an age appropriate gift. For the Adults there will be Sherry and a Mince Pie.

Trains will run regularly and booking is essential.

Please note: we will be not serving Big Pit Halt. The train will run between Furnace Sidings, Whistle Inn and Blaenavon High Level only.

Pay on the day availability is subject to space being available. Pre-booked customers will take priority. To avoid disappointment it is recomended that you book online.

Cost: Check website for more information
