On the 18th December we had a Special Delivery from Santa in the shape of Kennett signal box.
We were given four days notice to arrange transport and a crane to lift the box at the CVR - quite a feat in the run up to Christmas. All went well though and the box arrived right in the middle of our busiest Santa day! It it now on the sturgeon, where it will remain until a base is ready for it at Drawell.

The Santa Specials have been running well. Santa and his helpers have been kept busy.
All trains are being worked by Castle Donnington Power Station using our Pullman carriages.
Numbers have been good, as has the weather although a little cold. One more to go on the 21st now
